FSB General gives investigation $20.5 thousand stolen by his grand-son - employee of ‘K’ directorate
Teacher of the Federal Security Service Academy Valentin Karelin brought the money to law enforcers on his own accord.
Federal Security Service General Valentin Karelin has - on his own accord - brought investigators cash worth of 1.3 million rubles ($20.5 thousand) his grand-son Aleksander Karelin had received during an attack on Metallurg bank. The latter worked with the ‘K’ directorate, reports RBC with reference to the papers of a case announced at the Moscow district military court.
On Tuesday, there was a meeting related to an appeal against a decision to arrest Karelin Jr. The court rejected it.
“Witness Karelin V. L. stated he was giving - on his own accord - 1.3 million rubles ($20.5 thousand) to the investigation. This money was received from his grand-son,” the July 24 report announced by the judge states.
The General’s grand-son had earlier pleaded guilty. Lawyer of Karelin Jr. reported that his client had received 2 million rubles ($31 thousand) following the attack. Relatives of the accused are trying to pay the rest 700 thousand rubles ($11 thousand) to the victim.
The arrested Karelin Jr. served in the rank of Major with the organizational and analytical subdivision. The lawyer maintains that his client did not realized he had taken part in a crime and not in a operational procedure.
The CrimeRussia reported employees of the special units of the Federal Security Service Alpha and Vympel, as well as the ‘K’ directorate of the Economic Security Service of the Federal Security Service had been detained in Moscow on July 5.
The investigation theory is that they attacked an unemployed Aleksander Yumaranov who wanted to exchange 136 million rubles ($2.1 million) at the Metallurg bank he had borrowed. Operatives of the Federal Security Service took the money from him under the guise of operational procedures.
