Magnitsky family to ask human rights council for protection from police


Family and relatives of Sergey Magnitsky, the lawyer of the London-based investment fund Hermitage Capital who died in custody two years ago, are addressing the presidential human rights council after being pressured by the Interior Ministry, the fund’s press-release obtained by Gazeta.ru said.

“The Interior Ministry has for the fifth time sent a summons to Magnitsky’s relatives to participate in the investigation, refusing all their complaints about illegitimacy of the posthumous prosecution of Magnitsky,” the press-release said.

“I do not find it possible to take part in investigation procedures in the status which is not prescribed by the law and was given to me without my approval. I refuse to take part in the patently unlawful actions of this case, in the framework of which and on the basis of fabricated proof, my son was repressed,” Magnitsky’s mother, Natalya Magnitsky, said in a statement to the prosecutor general, Viktor Tchaika.

Magnitsky was arrested and jailed without trial in November 2008 and died in custody in November 2009, after being denied medical care. Magnitsky’ colleagues said he was arrested after he had explored and uncovered corruption schemes that were used by some Russian high-ranking officials.

Two doctors of the prison, Larisa Litvinova and Dmitry Kratov, were officially accused of voluntary manslaughter.

Human rights activists said the investigation was not complete.

In July this year, the US state department created a blacklist of officials FSB officers, high-rank police officials, prison guards, doctors, prosecutors, and tax inspectors, all linked to Magnitsky’s death. They are to be denied US visas.

Russia later created a retaliatory blacklist of 11 US citizens. быстрые займы онлайн микрозайм онлайн https://zp-pdl.com/online-payday-loans-in-america.php zp-pdl.com срочный займ
