YEKATERINBURG, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Security Service /FSB/ department in the Sverdlovsk Region opened a criminal case over the disclosure of the state secret after a plea, which head of the City Without Drugs Foundation Yevgeny Roizman has filed in the investigating agencies, press secretary of the regional Federal Security Service department Anna Lastovetskaya told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Roizman’s plea in the Federal Security Service department caused an inquiry prior to the investigation, upon the results of which it was decided to open a criminal case with due account of other operational materials obtained in the inquiry,” she said.
The criminal case was opened under an article of the Russian Criminal Code for the disclosure of state secret. The investigating actions are being taken. The details of the criminal case are not disclosed.
On Sunday, Roizman, who is running for the post of Yekaterinburg mayor from the Civic Platform Party, told reporters in Yekaterinburg, that the FSB detectives opened a criminal case over the illegal tapping of his telephone conversations.
“The printouts of my telephone conversations were found at the former official of the Sverdlovsk regional prosecutor’s office,” Roizman claimed. “To my mind, there were no such precedences here,” he added.
