ICRF considers several customers of Nemtsov's murder

The inquiry into the case of a probable customer of the murder of the politician Boris Nemtsov continues. It is possible that the crime had several customers, said Igor Krasnov, the Deputy Chairman of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Boris Nemtsov was killed on February 27, 2015, in Moscow. The defendants in his murder case are Zaur Dadaev, brothers Anzor and Shagid Gubashev, Tamerlan Eskerkhanov and Khamzat Bakhaev. Investigators consider Ruslan Mukhudinov, the driver of Ruslan Geremeev, to be both the customer and the organizer of the murder; Geremeev himself figures in the case as a witness. Advocates of the family of the slain politician insist that Geremeev must be charged.

"The inquiry into the case against Mukhudinov and the unidentified persons, who could be involved in the murder, continues. The crime could have not one, but several organizers and customers," the "Kommersant" quotes Mr Krasnov as saying.

According to his story, now, Ruslan Geremeev, the deputy commander of the battalion "Sever" (North), has no procedural status. He noted that Geremeev had disappeared immediately after Nemtsov's murder, and his whereabouts are still unknown, the RIA "Novosti" reports.
