Russia charges two doctors over Magnitsky’s prison death

Russia has charged two doctors at a Moscow prison with causing the 2009 death in pre-trial detention of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, a tragedy that ignited global outrage, investigators said Friday.

The Investigative Committee said it had “established a direct link between Magnitsky’s death and actions of the doctors in the prison” and had charged prison doctors Larisa Litvinova and Dmitry Kratov.

Litvinova is charged with causing death by negligence and if convicted could face up to three years in prison. Dmitry Kratov, who holds a senior post of deputy prison director, is charged with carelessness and faces up to five years in jail.

Magnitsky, a 37-year-old lawyer, spent nearly a year in pre-trial detention in Moscow’s Butyrka prison after his arrest in 2008.

He died of untreated heart conditions and pancreatitis in an isolation cell despite filing dozens of complaints demanding medical treatment.

Prior to his detention Magnitsky was working at what was once Russia’s largest Western investment fund and claimed to have uncovered a scheme used by police officials to reclaim about $235 million in taxes paid by his employer Hermitage Capital.

But instead officials charged Magnitsky with fraud and put him in Butyrka, Moscow’s most infamous prison. A report last month by President Dmitry Medvedev’s human rights council said that he may have been beaten.

Mikhail Fedotov, who heads the council, said the charges indicate “movement in the right direction,” but added that senior interior ministry officers should also be investigated, Interfax reported.

Hermitage Capital chief William Browder has published his own findings in the case of Magnitsky’s death and has alleged that corrupt tax reclamation schemes extended far beyond regular officials up to federal ministers.

The United States and other Western countries also expressed alarm over Magnitsky’s death and Washington has now imposed a visa blacklist against Russian officials who it believes were involved.

In a sign of the diplomatic damage caused by the controversy, reports said this week that Russia has already hit back with its own blacklist for US officials deemed to have violated the rights of Russians in separate cases. онлайн займ hairy woman https://zp-pdl.com/how-to-get-fast-payday-loan-online.php www.zp-pdl.com займы онлайн на карту срочно

Russians’ views on reasons for Magnitskiy’s death diverge, poll shows

Interfax

Around one-third of Russians (31 per cent) have admitted that they have never heard about the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergey Magnitskiy in a pre-trial detention centre, sociologists told the Interfax news agency.

Meanwhile, those who know about this incident and are watching the [development of the respective] events, cannot unequivocally say who is guilty of his death. This was revealed in a survey carried out by Levada Centre experts in 45 regions of the country between 19 and 23 August.

Of those polled, 18 per cent believe that Magnitskiy’s death came as a result of the actions of investigators, whom he accused of embezzling state funds. Another 14 per cent are sure that topmost government officials, who were threatened by Magnitskiy’s exposures, condemned him to death.

Cameron in Moscow

EU Russia Centre

David Cameron’s visit to Moscow on 12 September will be the first by a British Prime Minister since that of Tony Blair in 2005.

The six year gap can be explained by UK anger at the Russian refusal to extradite the prime suspect, now a Russian deputy, for the murder by poisoning in London of Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian agent. This murder shocked the UK and led to a freeze in Anglo-Russian relations. Former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, only had fitful contacts with President Medvedev.

Cameron will be unable to ignore the Litvinenko affair but he will hope to engage with both Putin and Medvedev and move the relationship forward. Both the UK and Russia are permanent members of the UN Security Council and need to cooperate on international issues. There has been some narrowing of differences over Iran and Afghanistan but the two sides were opposed in the recent Libya conflict. Although Moscow abstained in the critical UNSC resolution allowing Britain and France to implement the no fly zone, it then became highly critical as London and Paris pushed for regime change in Tripoli.

Lebedev Tries To Pull Mask Off ‘Department K,’ No Stranger To Scandal

Radio Free Europe

Russia’s monolithic secret services are back in the media spotlight. And once again, the reason has nothing to do with spying.

On September 13, banker and media mogul Aleksander Lebedev filed a lawsuit against the Federal Security Services (FSB) for financial damages he allegedly incurred after masked special forces armed with machine guns searched the premises of his National Reserve Bank (NRB) in November 2010.

Many speculated the raid was a so-called “mask show,” an act of intimidation and pressure designed to extort money from the businessman on the receiving end.

Visa ban?

The Moscow News

Russian human rights activists and political opposition members have sent a new version of the controversial “Magnitsky list” to the U.S. Senate, proposing to include the names of 305 Russian officials connected to the Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Yukos case – but whether or not anything will come of this proposal remains to be seen.

According to Gazeta, ru, Russia’s Prosecutor General, Yury Chaika, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Aleksandr Bastrykin, and Moscow city court chairman Olga Yegorova are on the list together with prosecutors and judges. The original “Magnitsky list” included names of 60 Russian officials who, along with their families, would be denied American visas for their alleged involvement in the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky. Proposed by senator Ben Cardin, the visa restrictions went into effect in July.

Churov assumes he is on the Magnitsky list – mistakenly

The Moscow News

The head of Russia’s electoral commission has said he is privileged to be on a US visa blacklist over the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, despite not actually being on the list.

Vladimir Churov told the TV channel Dozhd he was privileged to keep company with dozens of other senior Russian officials banned from entering the US but denied any involvement in the arrest and death of Magnitsky, and the alleged cover up of the massive tax fraud Magnitsky said he had exposed.

Bill Browder, Magnitsky’s old boss at Hermitage Capital, said that Churov was not in fact on the list but condemned Churov’s blasé attitude. “He was not on the list of people who tortured and killed Sergei Magnitsky, but any senior Russian government official who says that he is proud to be associated with those who grossly abused Magnitsky’s human rights immediately calls into question their integrity, their morality and their fitness for public service,” he told The Moscow News.

Следователь МВД из списка Кардина был приглашен Президентом Медведевым для обсуждения методов «Борьбы с коррупцией в России»

Общественный контроль

Вчера 23 ноября 2011 года подполковник Николай Будило был приглашен на встречу с Президентом РФ Медведевым для обсуждения механизмов борьбы с коррупцией. Подполковник Будило Н.Н. входит в список 60 российских чиновников (за номером 23), составленный Хельсинкской Комиссией США, которым запрещен въезд на территорию США в связи с причастностью к гибели Сергея Магнитского, хищению компаний фонда Hermitage и уплаченных ими налогов в размере 5,4 миллиардов рублей из российской казны.

(http://www.csce.gov/index.cfm?Fuseaction=Files.Download&FileStore_id=1744 )

Встреча состоялась вчера в 14:00 под руководством Президента Медведева для «обсуждения перспективы развития законодательства, проблемы, выявляемые правоприменительной практикой при расследовании различных категорий дел, в том числе о коррупции». По опубликованной информации, на встрече присутствовали 24 представителя силовых ведомств, включая Министра внутренних дел Рашида Нургалиева, Генерального Прокурора Юрия Чайку и Руководителя Следственного комитета Александра Бастрыкина, а также и старшего следователя по особо важным делам 1 отдела управления по расследованию организованной преступной деятельности Следственного департамента МВД — Будило Н.Н…

Следователь Будило был включен в список сенатора Кардина за свое участие в хищении 5,4 млрд.руб. из бюджета РФ — преступлении против российских граждан, раскрытом юристом Сергеем Магнитским. В частности, Николай Будило несет ответственность за приобщение к материалам уголовного дела заведомо подложных документов. Эти документы были использованы для сокрытия роли его коллег, сотрудников МВД Артема Кузнецова и Павла Карпова, в мошенничестве, осуществленном с конфискованными во время обысков и хранящимися на хранении в МВД правоустанавливающими документами компаний фонда Hermitage, оказавшимися в руках ранее знакомых Кузнецову и Карпову мошенников для организации крупнейшего незаконного возврата налогов на сумму в 5,4 млрд.руб., осуществленного в течение одного дня — 24 декабря 2007 года.

Сергей Магнитский, проводивший расследование, в своих показаниях указал на роль обоих сотрудников МВД – Кузнецова и Карпова как соучастников этого преступления против своих сограждан.

“Приглашение Президентом Медведевым следователя из списка Кардина для обсуждения проблем коррупции сродни приглашению Пабло Эскобара для обсуждения борьбы с наркотрафиком. Это превращает в посмешище все планы по борьбе с коррупцией, являясь очковтирательством,” – прокомментировал представитель Hermitage Capital. unshaven girls быстрые займы на карту https://zp-pdl.com/emergency-payday-loans.php https://zp-pdl.com/online-payday-loans-cash-advances.php срочный займ на карту онлайн
