Dutch Call Russian Prosecution “Medieval”

The Windsor Square

In a par­lia­men­tary let­ter sent to Dutch For­eign Min­is­ter, Dutch law­mak­ers urged their gov­ern­ment to impose visa bans on Russ­ian offi­cials in Sergei Mag­nit­sky case. They also requested that the Dutch Min­is­ter dis­cusses joint steps towards Rus­sia in rela­tion to this case at the next meet­ing of the Euro­pean Council.

In their let­ter, Dutch law­mak­ers stressed that in light of the recent events, it is hard to expect that Rus­sia allow a real inves­ti­ga­tion. The let­ter high­lights the fact that the Russ­ian Inte­rior Min­istry had rejected the find­ings of Russ­ian President’s Human Rights Coun­cil which found that Mag­nit­sky was unlaw­fully arrested, beaten before his death, and no one was held liable for this atrocity.

Dutch law­mak­ers also labelled as a “medieval bar­barism” the resump­tion by the Russ­ian Inte­rior Min­istry, 18 months after Sergei Magnitsky’s death, the pros­e­cu­tion against him — a man whom they falsely arrested and tor­tured to death.

“Are you aware of the Pres­i­den­tial Human Rights Com­mis­sion on July 5, inter alia, found that the arrest of Mag­nit­sky was ille­gal, that he may have beaten him and that med­ical care was with­drawn from him.

Are you aware that the Russ­ian Min­istry of Inte­rior on July 14 put these find­ings aside, and decided not to pros­e­cute anyone?

Are you also aware that the Russ­ian judi­cial author­i­ties have decided to resume per­se­cu­tion of Mr Mag­nit­sky and thus in man­ner of the medieval bar­barism have put a deceased vic­tim on trial?”

The Dutch law­mak­ers called upon Dutch For­eign Affairs Min­is­ter Uri Rosen­thal to deny Russ­ian offi­cials in the Mag­nit­sky case entry to the Nether­lands in accor­dance with the res­o­lu­tion unan­i­mously adopted by the Dutch Par­lia­ment in July this year. unshaven girl микрозаймы онлайн https://zp-pdl.com https://zp-pdl.com/how-to-get-fast-payday-loan-online.php срочный займ на карту онлайн
