Russia accuses America of kidnapping hacking suspect


 by Joseph Earnest July 9, 2014   


Newscast Media MOSCOWMoscow has said the arrest by the United States of a Russian man on computer-hacking charges amounts to the "kidnapping of a Russian citizen."

Roman Seleznyov, 30, was arrested on July 5 in the Maldives by the U.S. Secret Service and transported to Guam. He is accused of hacking U.S. retail computer systems to steal thousands of credit-card numbers.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said on July 8 that "we consider this as the latest unfriendly move from Washington" and asked for "coherent explanations about the incident."

Seleznyov is the son of Russian Duma deputy Valery Seleznyov.

Seleznyov was indicted in Washington state in March 2011 on charges including bank fraud, causing damage to a protected computer, obtaining information from a protected computer, and aggravated identity theft.  Add Comments>>
