Today we honor the memory of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitskiy, who died of abuse and neglect two years ago in a Moscow prison after bringing corruption allegations against senior officials. Despite widely-publicized credible evidence of criminal conduct in Magnitskiy’s case, Russian authorities have failed to bring to justice those responsible. While we welcome charges against two prison officials, we will continue to call for full accountability for those responsible for Magnitskiy’s unjust imprisonment and wrongful death. We will continue to fully support the efforts of those in Russia who seek to bring these individuals to justice.
