Zaur Dadaev Went to Grozny after the Murder of Boris Nemtsov
April 7, 2015 14:28


The accused of the murder of Boris Nemtsov, the deputy commander of the battalion of internal troops “Sever” of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Chechnya  Zaur Dadaev returned to Grozny on the day following the murder of the politician in order to take his passport. For some unknown reason the military unit did not give the passport to Dadaev, as RBC reported on Tuesday, April 7, citing unnamed sources.

The fact that  Dadaev tried to take his passport from the military unit was told to RBC by a source in law enforcement agencies. This information was confirmed by Ivan Gerasimov, the lawyer of the accused. He believes that this cannot be the evidence of the fact that Dadaev wants to hide from the investigation. “It is logical that he came to take his documents after his discharge” - the lawyer added. According to Gerasimov, they could refuse to give to Dadaev  his foreign passport, because the HR management of the battalion was absent. The lawyer does not know what his customer was doing during the period from March 1 to March 5. Dadaev was only detained on March 5.

The “Rosbalt” Agency previously reported that the members of the investigative team conducting the case of murder of Nemtsov traveled to Chechnya in order to talk to the commander of the “Sever” battalion  Alibek Delimkhanov. The source of RBC familiar with the investigation told to the edition that the investigators could interrogate Delimkhanov only after the personal intervention of the Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov.

The 55-year-old Boris Nemtsov was killed in the centre of Moscow on the night of February 28. Unknown persons riding in a white car shot him in the back at least six times while he was walking through Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge with his friend. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case by the articles “Murder” and “Illegal arms trafficking”. The investigation is considering several versions of the event. In particular, the murder could be a provocation for destabilization of the political situation in Russia. The “version associated with the Islamic extremist trace” is also considered: Nemtsov “was threatened in connection with his position regarding the shooting of the journalists of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris”. In addition, the crime could be related to the inner conflict in Ukraine, as well as commercial activities of Nemtsov or someone’s personal dislike towards him.
