Inter RAO Board member Сarina Turcan arrested for espionage
The Lefortovo court sent the top-manager to a pre-trial detention center.
The FSB detained a member of the board of Inter RAO Сarina Turcan on charges of espionage, Kommersant reported citing unnamed sources.
According to the newspaper, the operation was conducted for a long time − operatives watched Сarina Turcan's contacts. On Friday, June 15, the woman was detained and taken to the security service in Moscow.
On the same day, according to the information in the files of the Lefortovsky court, the petition for the arrest of Сarina Turcan, against whom a criminal case was initiated under the article on espionage (Art. 276 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), was granted.
In turn, TASS specifies that the arrested woman is a citizen of a foreign country. Since 2012, Сarina Turcan is a board member of PJSC Inter RAO, being the head of the trading block. Prior to that, she was the head of the divisions “Europe” (in 2011-2012) and “Moldova, Ukraine, Romania” (2010-2011). However, the website of Inter RAO indicates that the member of the board of the company is a Russian citizen.
It is noteworthy that on Monday, June 18, information about searches in the office of Deputy Minister of Energy Vyacheslav Kravchenko also transpired. One of the interlocutors of the agency suggested that the investigative measures are connected with Turcan's case.
In turn, Inter RAO reported to RBC that the board member of the company Сarina Turcan is on vacation.
