Davos rolling blog: day 3

Financial Times

09.15: What happens in Davos stays in Davos… or not? Gideon Rachman attended a session yesterday on Russia, and part of the conversation there – while ostensibly “off the record” – is reverberating outside the meeting room:

The question of what is, or is not, “on the record” at Davos remains a tricky one. Yesterday, I attended a Russia session that I was advertised as “off”. However, there were scores of people in the room, and I later discovered that several had tweeted or blogged about it. Now newspaper accounts are emerging. So let me belatedly join the party.

The most gripping exchange came right at the end when Bill Browder of Hermitage Capital – once the biggest foreign investors in Russia and now a bitter critic – asked the panel about the notorious death in police custody of Sergei Magnitsky, his lawyer and auditor.

The response of Igor Shuvalov, the deputy prime minister was – I think – meant to sound reasonable and reassuring. He described the case as “horrendous” and said that some people had already lost their jobs and been charged over it. But it was very difficult to get to the bottom of the case, because the “system” was protecting some guilty people.

The assembled business people did not seem impressed. One told me that – on the basis of that answer – he had decided not to proceed with a big potential investment in Russia. быстрые займы онлайн быстрые займы на карту https://zp-pdl.com https://www.zp-pdl.com быстрые займы онлайн
