moscow - Chechen ex-military Zaur Dadajev was convicted on Thursday to twenty years in prison for the assassination of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov. The punishment is lower than the lifelong confinement that dropped over the man who fired the fatal shots.
The four companions of Dadajev, who all know complicity, must also enter the cell. Their penalties range from eleven to nineteen years imprisonment in prison.
The five men who were found guilty of the murder of 2015 had to wait a long time for court rulings. The disclosure of the punishment would take place in the first instance last week on Tuesday, but it was repeatedly postponed.
The Nemtsov family is convinced that the five are not the real perpetrators, but only the real brain behind the attack: Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.
