Igor Sutyagin was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison by the Moscow City Court
Igor Sutyagin, convicted of betraying his country, was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison by the Moscow City Court. Sutyagin is to serve the sentence in a strict-regime colony. Incarceration is considered to have begun from the moment Sutyagin was arrested in Obninsk on October 29, 1999. The trial began on November 3, 2003. A jury returned a guilty verdict on Monday. Sutyagin, who had headed the military-technical and military-economic policies group within the foreign-affairs research department of the USA-Canada Institute, was charged with transmitting secret government information to representatives of Alternative Futures, a British consulting firm. According to Federal Security Bureau (FSB) information, the firm is a 'front' for United States intelligence and is involved in no scientific work. The Sutyagin matter was first considered by the Kaluga Regional Court, which on December 27, 2001, remanded it for reinvestigation. The Kaluga court took that action after finding 'significant violations of the law on criminal procedure' in the authorities' preparation of the Sutyagin case. When the reinvestigation was completed by investigators of the FSB, the case was transferred to Moscow City Court
