Russian hacker's kidnapping allegations debated

Guam - While Attorney Patrick Civille today filed additional documents in the District Court of Guam to support his motion to have accused Russian hacker Roman Seleznev immediately released from the Department of Corrections, the US Attorney's Office in Guam has filed its response to Civille's argument that he doesn't believe any US court has jurisdiction to hear the petition for Seleznev's removal because he alleges he was kidnapped by federal agents in the Maldives and illegally brought to Guam. Seleznev was indicted in the state of Washington on federal charges of aggravated identity theft and bank fraud. He's been at DOC since the beginning of the month.  In her response US Assistant Attorney Marivic David wrote the court "unquestionably has personal jurisdiction over Seleznev". She added the US Supreme Court has held that personal jurisdiction in a criminal case is established by the simple fact of the defendant's presence before the court, regardless of how that presence was secured. Civille has until twelve noon tomorrow to file a response.
