Defense asks US court to close the case against the son of the State Duma deputy
Russian lawyers Roman Seleznev, who is the son of State Duma deputy Valery Seleznev, asked a US court to close a cybercrime case against their client.
During the hearings, the defense stated that the Secret Service and the US Department of State officers, when detaining Seleznev, had grossly violated the laws of the Maldives, where he was.
Lawyers claim that, according to the Maldivian laws, the detainee must be brought to the local court without fail, however, in fact, the American special services immediately took Seleznev to the United States.
In turn, the agents who made the arrest, say that the operation was previously agreed with the political leadership of both the United States and the Maldives.
According to intelligence officers, the local police led the detention. Representatives of the United States gave him only after the appropriate sanction came from the Maldivian authorities.
US authorities accuse Seleznev is that from 2009 to 2011 year he stole, and then sold information about the personal data of US citizens.
Also, the son of a Russian deputy is accused of creating a website that tells how to use stolen credit card numbers to commit crimes.
Seleznev was detained on July 5 at the airport of the capital of Maldives - the city of Male. Soon he was transported to the American base on the island of Guam, and from there to the USA.
Russian does not recognize the blame. His father and the Russian foreign ministry called the incident a kidnapping.
The Forum previously reported that the 30-year-old Miami resident recognized guilty of participating in the activities of an organized criminal group, theft of personal data, the production of fake documents. A Las Vegas court sentenced him to nine years ’imprisonment and a 50 fine of millions of dollars.
