“[One of the suspects Hamzat] Bakhaev’s connection to the crime was confirmed by testimony of another suspect Zaur Dadaev,” the representative said at Moscow City Court hearing.
Russia's Investigative Committee asked the court to keep Bakhaev in custody, while the investigation continues.
Nemtsov was a high-profile Russian politician in the 1990s, later becoming a leader in the opposition to the current government. He was shot dead on February 27 in the center of Moscow.
Five suspects in the case have been arrested, Zaur Dadayev, Hamzat Bakhayev, Tamerlan Eskerkhanov, Shagit and Anzor Gubashev.
