Sergei Magnitsky libel claim struck out in landmark ruling

The Guardian

Blow to ‘libel tourism’ as high court rules Russian ex-policeman does not have prior reputation to defend in England and Wales.

The high court has thrown out a libel action taken by retired Moscow policeman against a British-based businessman in connection with his campaign for justice for whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky who was murdered in prison four years ago.

The decision to strike out Pavel Karpov’s case out is being seen as a landmark blow against “libel tourism” after the judge ruled that the case could not proceed on the grounds that the Russian did not have a prior reputation in England and Wales to defend.

“His connection with this country is exiguous and therefore there is a degree of artificiality about his seeking to protect his reputation in this country,” Mr Justice Simon ruled.

Karpov was suing Bill Browder and his UK-based fund Hermitage Capital for saying he was complicit in the “torture and murder” of anti-corruption whistleblower Magnitsky on a website and in interviews on video. hairy girl займ срочно без отказов и проверок hairy woman
