Why is this case to be tried in a military court?

Ex-Mayor Said Amirov
The Russian Legal Information Agency, citing an article in Kommersant, reports on the referral of a case from Dagestan to the military court system:
Russia's Supreme Court has ruled that the case against Magomed Abdulgalimov aka Kolkhoznik, charged with plotting murders and attempted murders being an accomplice of Said Amirov, once the influential mayor of Makhachkala, will be considered by a military court in accordance with a special procedure, Kommersant newspaper reported Tuesday.
The trial will be held under a special procedure as Abdulgalimov agreed to a plea deal.
Abdulgalimov was charged with arranging the murder of investigator Arsen Gadzhibekov in December 2011 which was ordered by Amirov, according to prosecutors.
Gadzhibekov had worked on a number of high-profile criminal cases, including the 2010 terror attack in Kizlyar that killed 10 and injured 270. . . .
