ANNA POLITKOVSKAYA MURDER TRIAL FIASCO as the accused acquittal highlights the difficulties prosecutors have faced in persuading jurors in high-profile criminal trials. Politkovskaya’s family and colleagues questioned the soundness of the case prosecutors built against Khadzhikurbanov and the Makhmudov brothers over the course of the investigation and trial and investigation was was done ineffectively as Anna Politkovskaya’s colleagues at Novaya Gazeta admit that the case against the three accused men was weak, based primarily on the testimony of one man, Dmitry Pavliuchenkov, a former colonel in an elite police surveillance unit who testified that Khajikurbanov tried to recruit him to put Politkovskaya under surveillance in late Sept 2006 but his testimony is compromised as the two had dispute about $25 K debt.
Most Human rights activists were also critical about the quality of the investigation while defense lawyers say prosecutors consistently produce shoddily crafted cases against suspects, thus leading to jury acquittals. In May 2006, a jury acquitted two Chechen men, Kazbek Dukuzov and Musa Vakhayev, in the 2004 murder of U.S. journalist Paul Klebnikov in Moscow
