The lawyers of Russian Vladislav Klyushin, who is accused of committing economic crimes in the USA, found an error in the testimony of an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, RIA Novosti reports.
“Vladislav Klyushin’s defense requests a hearing on errors and omissions in FBI Special Agent Kang’s testimony, which was used to obtain search warrants to access Klyushin’s electronic records and to exclude insider trading charges from the indictment,” a Klyushin defense spokesman said.
FBI Special Agent BJ Kang, according to the defense, obtained Klyushin’s search warrant without justification – the justification was only the similarity of the dealings of another defendant in the case. The fact of parallel trading of securities in no way allows us to assert that Klyushin could be involved in insider trading on the basis that one position (shares of one company) was likely to be traded simultaneously with another participant. Prosecutor’s Office”, the lawyers said.
Earlier, Bloomberg reported that the Russian Vladislav Klyushin may be involved in the exchange of prisoners between the Russian Federation and the United States.
