Defense fails to get probe extended against penitentiary service employees blamed for Magnitsky death


Investigators have refused to extend the probe against the prison employees, accused of involvement in Hermitage Capital Foundation lawyer Sergei Magnitsky’s death.

“I requested an additional investigation, but my request has been rejected,” Nikolai Gorokhov, the defense lawyer for Magnitsky’s mother Natalya, told Interfax.

The files related to Larisa Litvinova, a doctor with the prison where Magnitsky died, and to Dmitry Kratov, the prison’s deputy head responsible for medical services, were detached from the main case related to Magnitsky’s death. The investigation into their cases was completed and the cases are to be referred to prosecutors who are to confirm the indictment. Litvinova is no longer prosecuted because her limitation period has expired. But Magnitsky’s relatives challenged this decision. Russian Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin announced in November 2011 that “Kratov’s and Litvinova’s prosecution was started on July 18, 2011, after a direct link was established between their actions and Hermitage Capital Lawyer Sergei Magnitsky’s death in prison in 2009.”

“Kratov, who was the prison’s deputy head responsible for medical treatment and preventative work, was charged with negligence and failure to do his work properly, which led to an accidental death. Litvinova, who was a laboratory doctor at the same prison in 2009, was accused of causing an accidental death due to negligent performance of her duties,” Markin said.

Magnitsky, who was accused of tax evasion, died in prison on November 16, 2009. His death caused a public outcry in Russia and abroad.

The rights community blamed medical and law enforcement personnel for his death. Even though Magnitsky’s death was followed by dismissals at the Federal Penitentiary Service, it has not been investigated to the end, rights campaigners claim. микрозаймы онлайн онлайн займ https://zp-pdl.com/online-payday-loans-cash-advances.php https://zp-pdl.com/apply-for-payday-loan-online.php buy viagra online
