Lawyer: politician in Russia behind Politkovskaya murder

Via BBC:

“During the investigative stage, the prosecutor general stated that [the person who had ordered the killing] was someone big and horrible abroad,” Mr Musayev was quoted as saying by Russia’s Ria Novosti news agency.

The judge reversed his earlier decision to hold a closed-door trial

“But in court we can see in the indictment [conclusions] that this someone is not so big and horrible – it is a politician based in the country,” the said.

Mr Musayev added the indictment mentioned Ms Politkovskaya’s articles as a motive for her killing.
