Prosecutor says Politkovskaya killer is in western Europe



    MONTREAL, July 2 /CNW Telbec/ - The head of the investigations committee
of the prosecutor-general's office yesterday said the suspected killer of
Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya is believed to be in western Europe
and that "official requests for judicial cooperation have been sent to several
countries."
    "Revealing where Politkovskaya's killer is probably living could
jeopardise the investigation and enable him to escape capture," Reporters
Without Borders said. "There have been leaks of this kind throughout the
investigation."
    Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitri Muratov told Echo of Moscow radio that his
newspaper is going to request a judicial investigation into the leaks. "I find
it hard to understand why the murderer's place of residence has been
revealed," he said. "Each leak gives the murderer another chance to hide."
