(December 20, 2017, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Despite the request based on the extradition bill made by the officials at the US mission in Colombo, the government of Sri Lanka has created a path to escape for one of the most wanted persons for cybercrimes; reliable sources told the Sri Lanka Guardian.
According to the sources, he has escaped the country along with the head of JSC Rosoboronexport, the sole state intermediary agency for Russia’s exports/imports of defence-related and dual-use products, technologies and services, Alexander A. Mikheev, who was in the Island on a “business trip”.
However, a different source has suggested the Sri Lanka Guardian that the Russian origins hacker fled the country by boat via sea route.
