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.
