Tsurkan relived of duties as Inter RAO Lietuva CEO
VILNIUS. June 29 (Interfax/BNS) - Former Inter RAO (MOEX: IRAO) executive Karina Tsurkan, who has been charged with espionage, has been relieved of her duties as the CEO of Inter RAO Lietuva, the Lithuanian electricity supplier said in a statement.
Inter RAO Lietuva's Supervisory Board resolved on June 28 "to revoke Management Board member Karina Tsurkan from the Board of AB Inter RAO Lietuva before term and to appoint to the Management Board of AB Inter RAO Lietuva Alexandra Panina."
As reported earlier, the Inter RAO Board of Directors decided on June 28 to revoke Tsurkan's power to oversee trading.
Tsurkan has been charged with espionage. If her guilt is proven, she will face 10 to 20 years in prison.
An informed source told Interfax earlier Tsurkan was suspected of sharing information about Russia's major energy projects in foreign countries with the Romanian Foreign Intelligence Service, which is rumored to be working with the CIA.
"Tsurkan has pleaded not guilty, but the detectives have evidence," the source said.
Earlier this week, the Moscow City Court upheld Tsurkan's arrest as lawful.
