MOSCOW, February 13 (RAPSI) - Novaya Gazeta editor-in-chief Dmitry Muratov on Thursday said in the Moscow City Court that journalist Anna Politkovskaya had received threats on several occasions prior to her murder, RAPSI reports from the courtroom.

According to the witness, unknown persons threatened Politkovskaya in 2005 and 2006.

Novaya Gazeta newspaper journalist Politkovskaya was shot and killed in her apartment building on October 7, 2006. Her murder has been linked by some experts to her coverage of human rights abuses in Chechnya.

The five suspects include former police officer Sergei Khadzhikurbanov, Rustam, Ibragim, and Dzhabrail Makhmudov, and their uncle Lom-Ali Gaitukayev. The investigators believe that Rustam Makhmudov committed the murder with the help of his brothers Ibragim and Dzhabrail, their uncle, and Khadzhikurbanov.
