Guam - Roman Seleznev is no longer being represented by the public defenders office, according to an order from the District Court of Guam he is now being represented by attorney’s Joseph Razzano, Patrick Civille and Joshua Walsh. The U.S. Secret Service describes Seleznev as one of the world’s most prolific traffickers of stolen information. From 2009-2011 he’s accused of devising a scheme to defraud various financial institutions such as Chase Bank, Capital One and Citibank. His father is a Russian politician who says he intends to take all steps to protect his son’s lawful interests. DOC Spokesperson Jeff Limo confirms that Seleznev was visited by a Russian Consul recently. According to wire reports he is based in San Francisco, California.  According to an online article in “Russia Beyond The Headlines” Seleznev is being held in a damp cell, on a concrete floor with no blanket and essential hygienic items. His father is quoted in the article as saying this was a way to force his son to make a confession about something he was not involved in. Seleznev is scheduled to appear in federal court next week.
