Norway Has No Plans for Magnitsky Sanctions

Moscow Times

Norway has reiterated its concern about an investigation into the 2009 prison death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky but said it has no plans to impose any sanctions.

“Norway has no tradition of introducing unilateral actions against individual countries or persons. This policy remains also in the Magnitsky case,” the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow said in a statement.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide, writing about Magnitsky in a letter to a group of the country’s lawmakers earlier this month, said Olso was following the case closely but its policy was to only accept sanctions reached by the UN Security Council.

In response to Magnitsky’s death, the U.S. has passed the Magnitsky Act that blacklists Russian officials implicated of human rights violations. Magnitsky’s supporters have been pushing other countries to adopt similar sanctions.

Norway’s foreign minister said that while Oslo would stop short of imposing sanctions, it would use its membership in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the Council of Europe to raise the human rights agenda in Russia.

The embassy said Oslo also has shared its concerns repeatedly with Russian officials.

“The Norwegian government remains concerned over the manner in which the Russian authorities have handled the follow-up to Mr. Magnitsky’s death in custody and over the post-mortem trial against Mr. Magnitsky,” the embassy statement said. “We have raised our concerns with Russian authorities on numerous occasions, both bilaterally and multilaterally.” payday loan займ на карту female wrestling https://zp-pdl.com https://zp-pdl.com/online-payday-loans-in-america.php микрозайм онлайн

    If Norway were smart it would expel all Russian diplomats the way the Obama Administration needs to do. The situation on the ground on Long Island (NY) is very bad & the terror cell is being run from the Russian dacha on Dosoris in Glen Cove,NY. Millions of Long Islanders are being exterminated like vermin. The terror cell founders are Putin’s illegals. The mass genocide underway using phone cloning to know when homes & stores can be turned into dirty bombs without the murderers being caught is Russian government sanctioned. Putin would have locked up his illegals & shutdown the terror cell’s operations on Russian soil if he hadn’t rubber stamped the eradication of Long Island’s residents.All terror cell members will be contained in Guantanamo. Our federal pen can’t absorb so many illegals at one time.

    The US has a policy to never negotiate with terrorists. Putin is playing divide & conquer of NATO. He’s obviously doing a good job since right now NATO is divided when must members refuse to take a stand in Vladmir Putin’s tyranny. It’s disappointing that what the US labels allies are so willing to become Putin’s slaves.How many US armed service members’ lives will it cost us to free EU fools from this slavery when you decide you don’t want to be Putin’s victims any longer?
