Cashier Khayrullina’s husband retracts his words about spending $396k stolen from bank
Khayrullin says it was his wife’s lawyers who came up with the version about game addiction.
Marat Khayrullin, the husband of the cashier, who is accused of embezzling 25 million rubles ($396 thousand) from Rosselkhozbank, has retracted his words about losing money.
Luiza Khayrullina’s husband made the statement after a hearing of the Supreme Court of Bashkiria, which had place him under house arrest. Marat admitted that he had slandered himself under the pressure of his wife’s lawyers.
“They misled me and did not explain the legal consequences. Everything that I said was from their words,” the defendant told journalists, Life reports. Khayrullin read the statement for the media from a sheet.
The court sent the spouse of former cashier Luiza Khayrullina under house arrest in the case of embezzling more than 25 million rubles from Rosselkhozbank in Salavat. Investigators accused him of theft.
Marat Khayrullin was detained upon returning to Bashkiria from Moscow, where the arrested spouse had spoken on Channel One and announced a fundraiser for the return of the stolen money. The cashier’s husband claimed that he had lost the money while gambling.
