Major General Vitalii Gamov, who was in charge of the coast guard in Russia's Far East, died from his burns in a Japanese hospital after attackers threw Molotov cocktails through the windows of his home on Sakhalin Island in May 2002.
Russian officials said Gamov was killed by criminals in revenge for his efforts to fight poachers.
Two of the suspects were arrested last month. A senior aide to Sakhalin's chief prosecutor, Tatyana Kutuzova, was quoted today as saying that the third suspect was arrested on 12 November.
