    Attorneys Seek to Change Venue for Boston Bombing Co-conspirators

    Attorneyes for three friends of Boston Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be going to court this week to try to convince a judge to have their cases move to a locale outside Massachusetts.

    Motions have just been filed for Dias Kadyrbayev, Azamat Tazhayakov and Robel Phillipos.

    Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, Kazakhstan nationals, have been charged with removing the bombing suspect’s laptop along with a backpack filled with fireworks from his dorm after the bombing in April 2013.

    Philliops is accused of lying to investigators. All three have pleaded not guilt.

    Claiming the three cannot get a fair trail in Massachusetts because of media coverage, the attorneys have not yet publicly named an alternate location. Prosecutors have opposed the request.

    New York criminal attorney, Arkady Bukh, is representing Azamat Tazhayakov. Bukh has represented internationally known suspects previously.

    Pretrial hearings begin Tuesday in a Massachusetts courtroom.
