Russian hacker detained in Spain is afraid of being killed in American prison
Pyotr Levashev said that as he is a Russian officer, he could be killed in the American prison.
The court in Madrid passed a decision on the extradition of Russian Pyotr Levashov, accused of hacker attacks, in the USA.
Levashov himself asked not to extradite him to America as he is afraid that he “would be subjected to tortures” or would be killed within a year. Otherwise, he will commit suicide.
“I am an officer of the Russian army, I have a confidential military specialty and I gave a subscription about nondisclosure,” Levashov said in court, without giving details of military service, however noting that for the last 10 years he has been working for United Russia, collecting information about the opposition.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
