Defendant in hacker attack on Aeroflot seeks to prosecute investigators
MOSCOW, April 19 - RAPSI. Former head of processing company ChronoPay Pavel Vrublevsky, charged with masterminding a hacker attack on Aeroflot's web site in 2010, demands to prosecute agents of the Federal Security Service (FSB) as well as a police investigator, defense attorney Lyudmila Aivar told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com) on Thursday.
"We have studied the case and have concluded that the majority of the evidence was falsified and thus should be considered invalid," Aivar said. She also explained that FSB investigators went "beyond court-authorized sanctions" and carried out investigative activities breaching the constitutional rights of the defendant. For one thing, the investigation was carried out beyond the legal time-frame.
