WASHINGTON, July 12, /ITAR-TASS/. Spokesman of the U.S. Marshals Service Don Hall says detained Russian citizen Roman Seleznev will be guaranteed medical assistance.
Don Hall said Guam authorities have staff to handle medical issues.
"The U.S. Marshals Service is adamant about ensuring that detainees receive all necessary medical care and prescribed medication," Hall said.
Russian citizen Roman Valeryevich Seleznev was detained at the international airport in the city of Male, the capital of the Republic of Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean-Arabian Sea area, on July 5, Russian Foreign Ministry stated earlier. On the same day he was “brought by agents of an American security service aboard an airplane of a private airline by force and was taken to the Guam Island.” This fact was already confirmed in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
American detectives suspect Seleznev of hacking, stealing and selling personal information on credit cards of U.S. consumers from October 2009 to February 2011. In March 2011 Washington state court has brought accusations against him in absentia on 29 counts for which Seleznev can face a cumulative sentence of several dozens of years in jail and a big fine of millions of U.S. dollars. Meanwhile, U.S. Nevada law enforcement agencies opened a criminal case against this Russian citizen on suspicion of being a member of a criminal group engaged in extortions.
Russian Foreign Ministry takes this affair as “one more unfriendly step taken by Washington.” The Russian ministry noted that the country expects explanations from the United States. Russian authorities are also taking all possible efforts to find details of Seleznev’s detention and to attain his soonest return to the homeland.
