Magnitsky’s mother asks lawyers to stay away from son’s trial

Moscow News

Sergei Magnitsky’s mother asked Moscow lawyers not to participate in the posthumous trial of her son, which she thinks is illegal.

Natalya Magnitskaya, the mother of murdered Hermitage Capital fund lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, wrote a letter to President of Moscow’s Chamber of Lawyers Genry Reznik, and asked all Moscow lawyers not to participate in the trial over her son, who died in a pre-trial detention center in 2009, RBC Daily reported.

Preliminary hearings have been set for January 28. On December 26, Sergei Magnitsky’s family lawyers and William Browder’s Hermitage Capital managers quit the process calling it a “political punishment by Russian authorities.”

“Neither myself, nor other close relatives of my son intend to participate in the event initiated in the Tverskoy Regional Court of Moscow,” Magnitskaya wrote.

“By appearing at the hearing, a lawyer appointed by the court could be ignorant about the essence of the case and not realize the illegality of the posthumous criminal persecution of my son. Nevertheless, their presence will help the court prove that the right on defense is not violated, and the lawyer could become an unwilling accomplice in a crime,” she explained.

Reznik confirmed that he received the letter, but said he has not considered the request yet. “I do not make this kind of decisions alone. Our council does this,” he said.

However, a defense lawyer appointed by the state has no right to refuse or risk losing his legal status, said Nikolai Klen, a member of the Legal Chamber’s council. срочный займ hairy woman www.zp-pdl.com https://zp-pdl.com/fast-and-easy-payday-loans-online.php unshaven girl
