The Investigative Committee began checking one of the leaders of the Butyrka prison for involvement in the illegal organization of cryptocurrency mining in the territory of the detention center. It is reported by “Kommersant”.
According to investigators, in November 2021, the suspect, together with accomplices, installed mining equipment in a branch of the FSIN psychiatric hospital located in Butyrka prison.
Previously, the devices worked until February of this year. For the operation of the equipment, electricity with a total cost of more than 62,000 rubles was used.
Law enforcers are checking one of the deputy heads of the detention center on the fact of possible abuse of authority.
Recall that in January in Moscow, employees of the branch of Rosseti Moscow Region turned off 50 mining servers.
