The U.S. government explained the appearance of a mark on the departure of Lesina after the date of death

The representative of the Bureau of customs and border protection (CBP) Michael said that the former Minister of press of Russia Mikhail Lesin left the U.S. in December 2015 40 days after his death. He also explained why the entry about the departure of Lesina from the United States appeared in the documents of the border guard — it was made to close the visa, which he previously gave. According to officials, this is standard procedure.

“We are talking about photocopies of records in the database of the Bureau of customs and border protection, which was made to close nonimmigrant visa status of the deceased. This is not a record of actual departure from the US on a commercial or private plane. Bureau of customs and border protection has no record of the deceased left the United States after the date of his death”, — quotes RIA Novosti Friel.
