Bulgaria: Alledged Nemtsov Killer Retracts Confessions Zaur Dadayev

One of the five suspects in the Boris Nemtsov murder case, Zaur Dadayev denied the truthfulness of the confessions he made Sunday.

Dadayev said that he had perjured himself, when admitting to the crime, as reported by the Moskovsky Komsomolets (MK) Tuesday.

Russian judge Natalia Mushnikova stated Tuesday that Dadayev had made full confessions on the murder. He made no comment while he was in the courtroom.

In an interview with the MK correspondents at the Lefortovo detention center, Dadayev however denied any participation in the murder.

"They were crying all the time: ‘Did you kill Nemtsov?’ I answered no,'' MK quoted him as saying. ''At the moment of detention I was with my friend, my former subordinate Ruslan Yusupov. They told me they would set him free if I confess. I agreed. I thought I would save him and will be taken to Moscow alive… I thought as soon as I am in Moscow I will tell court the truth. That I am not guilty. But the judge did even let me speak."

He further mentioned that another man named Ali Matiev could prove his non-involvement.

The interviewers met with two more of the murder suspects - Anzor and Shagid Gubashev. The latter said he had been beaten by the police, but nonetheless maintains the statement that he is not involved in the crime.

Russian government's critic Boris Nemtsov was shot dead on Moscow's Bolshoy Moskovretsky Bridge, located immediately next to Kremlin in the night between February 27 and 28.
