YEKATERINBURG, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Security Service department in the Sverdlovsk Region opened a criminal case over the disclosure of the state secret after head of the City Without Drugs Foundation Yevgeny Roizman filed a plea in the investigating agencies, press secretary of the FSB regional 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 the operational materials obtained in the inquiry,” she said.
The criminal case was opened for the disclosure of the state secret under an article of the Russian Criminal Code. 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 eavesdropping of his telephone talks.
“The printouts of my telephone talks were found at the former official of the Sverdlovsk regional prosecutor’s office,” Roizman claimed. “To my mind, there were no such precedents here,” he added.
For his part, Civic Platform leader Mikhail Prokhorov, who is staying in Irkutsk, told reporters that the party will be following the progress of investigation.
“We will be monitoring the criminal case to finalize it compulsorily,” he told Itar-Tass. “The eavesdropping of telephone talks is serious,” Prokhorov added.
