Russians Daniil Aldunenkov and Roman Brik, detained in Thailand on suspicion of fraudulent transactions with cryptocurrencies, have had their arrest extended until December 5. TASS reports this.
Before this date or within seven days after it, the court must consider the case and render either a conviction or an acquittal.
According to investigators, Aldunenkov and Brik participated in laundering funds of a criminal group through the Binance cryptocurrency exchange, using forged documents and transferring their data to third parties.
There is an aggravating circumstance in the case – a local resident killed his wife and two minor children after the scammers forced the woman to transfer a large amount of funds taken on credit to their account.
Aldunenkov’s defense insists on his innocence.
Let us remind you that the Russians were arrested in early September. They face 30 to 50 years in prison. The defendants were denied bail.
