MOSCOW, August 25 /TASS/. A man who stormed a bank in central Moscow on Wednesday has pleaded guilty.
The court will consider a request for his arrest on August 26, Yulia Ivanova, senior aide to the investigation department head for the Moscow region, told TASS.
"The suspect fully recognized his guilt and admitted that he had taken hostages," Ivanova said.
She clarified that charges could be brought against the suspect later on Thursday. Investigators will demand his arrest on Friday, August 26.
A man, who called himself Aram Petrosyan (born 1961), stormed a Citibank branch located at 15, Bolshaya Nikitskaya street, 800 meters away from the Kremlin, at around 18:30 on August 24. He threatened to blow up a bomb. A small yellow box wrapped in a cello tape from which wires were sticking out hang around his neck. The man said he was an entrepreneur from the Moscow region who produced first aid kits before he went bankrupt. The explosive device turned out to be a hoax.
Petrosyan demanded that a law on bankruptcy of natural persons be cancelled and a special institution for dealing with problems of broke entrepreneurs be set up.
