Investigation into the murder of Stanislav Markelov and Anastasia Baburova is complete
The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Prosecutor General's Office (SKP-RF) has concluded the criminal investigation into the murder of attorney Stanislav Markelov and 'Novaya Gazeta' reporter Anastasia Baburova. On Monday a criminal case was referred to the Prosecutor General's Office for confirmation of an indictment.
Two Moscow natives are charged in the lawyer's murder: Nikolai Tikhonov and Yevgeny Khasis. «It was found that Tikhonov and Khasis, adherents of radical nationalist views, committed the crime for reasons of ideological hatred and enmity in connection with Markelov's active involvement in the antifascist movement, as well as his professional activities in criminal cases protecting the rights of victims and accused who adhere to the antifascist ideology. Baburova was a witness to the murder of Markelov, and was killed in order to conceal the crime,» the SKP-RF reported in 'Lenizdat.Ru'.
The murder occurred on January 19th, 2009. 34-year-old Markelov was shot in head while walking along Prechistenka Street after returning from a press conference. He was accompanied by 25-year-old Baburova, a freelance reporter for 'Novaya Gazeta', who was also shot and died later in a hospital.
According to Tikhonov's lawyer, Anatoly Zhuchkov, his client denies any involvement in the murder, but did plead guilty to trading in firearms. During a search, an assault rifle, two pistols, as well as corresponding ammunition, were found in Tikhonov's possession. The period of protective custody for Tikhonov and Khasis was extended until February 19th, 2011. The charges are punishable by up to life imprisonment.
Stanislav Markelov was a well-known lawyer whose work was linked to several high-profile cases. In particular, cases such as Budanov, where he was defended the family of Elsa Kungayeva, the terrorist attack on Dubrovka, the mass beatings in Blagoveshchensk, and the case affecting the city government of Khimki. It had already been suggested that the killing was linked to his professional activities. Markelov also had many cases involving ethnic murders, and took the side of the victims. Anastasia Baburova was a freelancer for 'Novaya Gazeta' and had written several articles on anti-fascists.
