The family of Russian investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya, who was assassinated in 2006, brought in a suit on Wednesday claiming 1 million rubles from each of the five men who were found guilty of the murder on Tuesday, an Interfax correspondent reported from a Moscow court, citing the family's lawyer, Anna Stavitskaya.
A jury issued a guilty verdict on Tuesday for Chechnya native Lom-Ali Gaitukayev, his nephews Rustam, Dzhabrail and Ibragim Makhmudov, and former policeman Sergei Khadzhikurbanov.
Politkovskaya, who worked at Moscow's Novaya Gazeta newspaper, was shot dead in the stairwell of her apartment building in Russia's capital on October 7, 2006.
