PACE members adopted the decision after speeches delivered to the Assembly by leader of People's Freedom Party (PARNAS) Mikhail Kasyanov, Nemtsov's family lawyer Vadim Prokhorov, daughter of the murdered politician Zhanna Nemtsova, as well as PARNAS member Olga Shorina and journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza. They called on PACE to monitor the investigation of the murder. They believe that the Russian law enforcement agencies do not make efforts sufficient to establish the actual masterminds and assassin's paymasters.
