US senators seek visa bans for two senior Magnitsky officials

Emerging Markets

Two senators have urged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to consider banning entry into the US for two senior Russian police officials who are believed to be complicit in the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.

Earlier, the State Department put dozens of Russian officials blamed for Magnitsky’s death on a no-visa list after Russian authorities refused to take action against them.

Generals Tatiana Gerasimova and Nikolai Shelepanov, senior figures in the Russian Interior Ministry’s criminal investigation arm, are planning a visit to Washington to discuss intellectual property rights.

They will, however, end up on the visa ban list under recent US human rights laws if the initiative of Senators Roger Wicker and Benjamin Cardin goes through, according to a statement from Hermitage.

Magnitsky was arrested on a tax evasion charge after launching an investigation into an alleged $230m tax fraud in government. The gravely sick 37-year-old man died in a Moscow remand jail two years ago after being denied essential medical care.

Russian authorities launched a low-key probe into his death last summer, but weeks later came up with resuscitated posthumous tax evasion proceedings against him. займ на карту без отказов круглосуточно займы на карту https://zp-pdl.com/emergency-payday-loans.php https://zp-pdl.com payday loan
