Well this just got even more interesting! I'm not sure if this has been posted yet but....

www.cnn.com...


A sixth suspect in the shooting death of a top Russian opposition figure blew himself up after a standoff with police in the capital of the Chechen Republic, state-run television reported Sunday.

Beslan Shavanov, 30, was holed up in a building in Grozny when police arrived to arrest him Saturday afternoon, Russia 24 reported. Police surrounded the building and Shavano tried to escape, throwing a grenade at police officers before blowing himself up, the station said.

The news came as Russian authorities reported making five other arrests in connection with Boris Nemtsov's killing.

One of those arrested claims to have an alibi, according to Russia's Sputnik News.

"At the time of the murder, I was at work as I usually am every day. There are many people, my colleagues, who will confirm this," the news agency quoted Tamerlan Eskerkhanov as saying in Moscow's Basmanny District Court.

Two of the suspects have been formally charged and three "remain under the status of suspects," court spokeswoman Anna Fadeyeva told Sputnik.

Nemtsov, one of President Vladimir Putin's most outspoken critics, was shot in the back on a Moscow bridge as he walked with his girlfriend near the Kremlin in late February.

Surveillance video showed someone darting from the sidewalk and into a nearby car right after Nemtsov collapsed.

Putin has been informed of the arrests in connection with Nemtsov's death, Russian media said, citing Federal Security Service director Alexander Bortnikov.

Two of the other suspects are Anzor Gubashev and Zaur Dadayev, Bortnikov said in a televised statement. The others are Ramzan Bakhayev and Shagit Gubashev, Anzor's younger brother, according to a Sputnik report that also said Dadayev was the only one of the five to plead guilty -- though to what crimes was not clear.

Bortnikov said those detained are from the southern region of the North Caucasus, which for years has been a hotbed of unrest and rebellion against Moscow.

The suspects
Dadayev had previously served as an officer in a Chechen police battalion, Albert Barakhayev, secretary of the Security Council of the Caucasian republic of Ingushetia, told the official news agency TASS.

Dadayev was the deputy commander of one of the Chechen Republic's Ministry of Internal Affairs groups, Sputnik reported, adding that Gubashev worked at a security firm in Moscow.

Gubashev was arrested between the town of Malgobek and the village of Voznesenovskaya, while Dadayev was arrested in the city of Magas, Barakhayev told TASS.

The slain opposition leader's daughter, Zhanna Nemtsova, told CNN she is "not surprised both of them (are) of Caucasus origin. It was predictable."

Nemtsova said the only things she knew about the arrests came from media reports, as authorities did not contact her immediately.

Later Saturday, a southern Russian law enforcement official told state news agency RIA Novosti that two more men were arrested.

The two suspects in the second arrest were not named, but one of them was driving with Dadayev, and the other man is Gubashev's younger brother, Barakhayev said. Like Gubashev and Dadayev, those two suspects are also ethnic Chechens, according to Barakhayev.

What makes you think they were all in the car and that all of them are guilty? All we see is that there are 6 suspects, not 6 killers.

It actually shows that they have no clue who did it.. or ?? We propably will see even more suspects in coming weeks.

If someone accused blows himself up there might be other reasons too..

I guess we will see how this develops, if the rest of the suspects stay alive and there is a credible story that matches the evidence, with proper public testimony that stands up, then maybe this is one case that will not become yet another endless conspiracy pain. It all looks really fishy though, considering that a number of people that didn't like Putin has been killed under mysterious circumstances.

Or they've got many leads that can be connected to a number of people?

Maybe this type of investigation is unfamiliar in your country, but sometimes, a lead doesn't always trace to just one person, but to multiple ones!

But, you're right, if he actually threw grenade at police, he was definitely involved in the crime!

If they are arrested by russian police they are already guilty and will be scapegoated. Also being chechnian they are doubly screwed.

PUTIN has been using Chechan Mercanaries in his secret war in Eastern Ukraine. this is proven.

I seriously think that he used the same mercanaries to take out Boris Netmsov, because the loose ends could be taken care off easily enough and Checnya could be used as the scapegoat for geopolitical russian gain in the future.

expect more Russian military moves down south in the Caucaus region in near future.

That's funny!

I guess the CIA didn't give them enough gas money to make it to the border.

Exactly! Russian justice is so efficient they get a 99% conviction rate! If they get charged with the murder, as one has already admitted doing it and 2 others have been charged, then they are going to jail for a long time. The rest are still 'suspects' so they can be held for the moment.

I find the Chechen involvement interesting to say the least.

The Russian police stated it was a contract killing... The question now is who took out the contract.

My guess is these "suspects" will be blamed and we will never see who paid them.

Conspirators..ie anyone involved in the planning, logistics..etc, do not all have to be present at the time of the crime to be guilty or suspect.
