Espionage Suspect Whelan Had Classified Docs at Detention in Russia – Attorney – Sputnik International
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Vladimir Zherebenkov, attorney for espionage suspect Paul Whelan, told Sputnik on Monday that his client was found to be in possession of classified documents at the time he was detained last month in Moscow.A Moscow City Court has ruled the detention of espionage suspect Paul Whelan lawful and refused to release him from custody, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the scene on 22 January.
Do you even wonder how such a “normal guy” has in possession at least four different countries legal passports and why he is buying flash drives/data of information, while in Russia only at a wedding?
Passports from Ireland, USA, Britain and Canadian….rumor is he has a French passport also! And since he is Canadian born, that may just not be a rumor….that makes five different countries…
His lawyer says: Before Paul Whelan was detained in Moscow and accused of spying, he was given a thumb drive that he thought held photos of Russian churches but actually contained “state secrets,” his lawyer said Tuesday. And Whelan didn’t even look at the drive, according to the lawyer, because he was taken into custody immediately.
