Leader of Shaltay-Boltay gave testimonies against his accomplices
Vladimir Anikeev has given testimonies against his former subordinates.
The leader of the hacker group Shaltay-Boltay (Humpty Dumpty) gave testimonies against his former subordinates, Konstantin Teplyakov and Aleksander Filinov, during a court session. To recall, earlier Vladimir Anikeev agreed to cooperate with the investigation.
“Anikeev was invited as a witness from the side of the prosecution. During interrogation, he interrupted indications and demanded a lawyer. His interrogation lasted the whole day,” lawyer Natalya Zemskova told RIA Novosti.
Filinov and Teplyakov are accused of a crime under part 3 of Art. 272 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal Access to Computer Information made by a group of persons by previous concert or organized group). According to Zemskova, Teplyakov recognized his participation in the crimes imputed to the group. Filinov, on contrary, denies his fault.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, the Moscow City Court sentenced leader of the group Vladimir Anikeev to two years of the colony. Anikeev's defense appealed against the sentence, therefore it has not entered legal effect yet.
The group of hackers Shaltay-Boltay became known a few years ago. Hackers cracked computers and tablets of the high-ranking officials, organizations, and media and traded the stolen information through the Internet.
