MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Investigation Committee (IC) is going to institute criminal proceedings on several more facts of the encroachment on the life of Russian children, adopted by American nationals, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
Specifically, the IC Chief Investigation Department instituted criminal proceedings against Michael Grizmore, who is suspected of sexual violence against his adopted daughter from Russia, who was under age. According to the information, obtained by Russian investigators, the lawyers of Grizmore, who wished to secure his acquittal, forged the documents about the age of the girl at the time, when she fell victim to a sexual crime. Besides, they intended to describe her as a person suffering from a mental disease,” Markin said.
According to his information, lawyers used the same tactics during the trial of the Cravers. They described Vanya Skorobogatov as a mentally unbalanced child. “The version was absolutely refuted by Russian experts during the investigation,” Markin added.
