A Russian Court sentenced a man convicted of murdering opposition leader Boris Nemtsov to 20 years in Jail and handed terms of between 11 and 19 years to four other men convicted of being his accomplices.

The Court handed the longest sentence, of 20 years, to Zaur Dadayev.

Nemtsov, one of President Vladimir Putin’s most vocal critics, was murdered in 2015 as he walked across a bridge near the Kremlin after dining with his Girlfriend.

He had been working on a report examining Russia’s role in the conflict in Ukraine. His killing sent a chill through opposition circles.

The same Court last month found the five men guilty of killing Nemtsov, but the late Politician’s Allies said the Investigation had been a cover-up and that the people who had ordered his killing remained at large.
