The Moscow City Court has taken up the case of Russian Forbes murdered editor in chief Paul Klebnikov
The Moscow City Court has taken up the case of Russian Forbes murdered editor in chief Paul Klebnikov, court press secretary Anna Usacheva told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. She said that court hearings would be closed for the press as the case is classified. “The judge will set the date of the first hearing within 14 days in compliance with the Criminal Code of Practice,” she said. Two Chechen natives, Kazbek Dukuzov and Musa Vakhayev, will face the court. They were apprehended in Minsk on October 17, 2004, and transferred to Russia this February. The suspects have been charged with murder, extortion, assault and membership in a criminal group. Moscow notary Fail Sadretdinov will be another prisoner in the dock. Klebnikov, 40, was killed on July 9, 2004. Investigators said that the killers were waiting for him in a car near the Springer Russia office on Dokukin Street of Moscow, where the Russian Forbes is based. The journalist was shot dead on his way to the metro. Prosecutors said that an organized group involving Kazbek and Magomed Dukuzov, Vakhayev and Magomed Edilsultanov perpetrated the crime. The group was formed in Moscow in 2002 for extortions and murders for hire. Investigators have identified the person who ordered the murder as Chechen resident Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev. They think that the group was also involved in the murder of Chechen vice premier Yan Sergunin on June 25, 2004, and the attempted murder of businessman Alexei Pichugin. Three suspects in the Klebnikov case, including Nukhayev, are wanted.
