Russians quiz Sergei Magnitsky’s mother

Daily Telegraph

Russian authorities risk further controversy after calling the mother of dead whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky for questioning into his alleged criminality.

The highly unusual move comes after prosecutors refused to drop a posthumous tax investigation into the lawyer who died in custody two years ago. He was jailed after blowing the whistle on what he claimed was the biggest tax fraud in Russian history.

Mr Magnitsky was working for London-based investment fund Hermitage Capital Management when he made the allegations. Shortly after revealing the alleged tax scam, Mr Magnitsky was jailed and allegedly beaten. He died after being denied medical care. His case raised global concern about law and order in Russia.

Despite the worries, Russian prosecutors have refused to drop investigations into Mr Magnitsky’s alleged criminality unless his family give up their rights to seek justice relating to his death.

In a statement Mr Magnitsky’s mother, Natalia Magnitskaya, said: “I refuse to knowingly participate in illegal investigative actions in a criminal case, renewed in respect of my son. I ask again for protection for me and all other relatives of Sergei from this persecution.”

The US has responded to the case by placing visa bans on officials involved in the case.

Hermitage founder William Browder said: “Russian authorities seem to think that by intimidating [Mrs Magnitskaya] with interrogations and re-opening the criminal case posthumously against Sergei, she will relent from her loud and embarrassing call for justice.” hairy girls hairy girl https://zp-pdl.com/best-payday-loans.php https://zp-pdl.com/online-payday-loans-cash-advances.php займы на карту без отказа
