Advocate states investigators' inaction in Nemtsov's case (+video)

There is virtually no investigation into the murder of the oppositional politician, Boris Nemtsov, stated the advocate for the Nemtsov family, who took part in a protest rally in Moscow.

On February 27, several dozen people gathered in Moscow on the Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge, where Boris Nemtsov was shot dead. On Saturday, February 29, an action "Nemtsov's March" was held in Moscow.

According to the "White Counter", at least 22,300 people took part in the march. The police counted more than half of them – 10,500 participants.

Vadim Prokhorov, an advocate for the Nemtsov family, joined the action. He told the "Dozhd" TV Channel that the investigation into the murder was ongoing, but no real investigative actions were conducted.

Every year, on the day of Boris Nemtsov's death, actions are held in different cities of Russia. Five natives of Chechnya and Ingushetia had been convicted in his murder case. According to the Nemtsov family, real customers of the murder should be sought among Chechen leadership.
