Sberbank Cuts Suit Against Armored Truck Guard

Sberbank has reduced its civil suit against a former armored-truck guard on trial for stealing 250 million rubles ($8.3 million) after recovering most of the money, RIA-Novosti reported Thursday.

The bank reduced its suit to 1.6 million rubles after police confiscated the rest of the sum from Alexander Shurman, the agency said, citing a bank representative. Shurman was detained eight days after the June heist while hiding in a Perm region forest. His closed trial began in late December. (MT)
