We honor the memory of Russian lawyer Sergey Magnitskiy, who died Nov. 16, 2009 in a Moscow prison after making corruption allegations. Despite widely-publicized, credible evidence of criminal conduct resulting in Magnitskiy’s death, Russian authorities have failed to bring to justice those responsible. While we recognize that negligence charges are being pursued against a prison official, we will continue to call for full accountability for those responsible for Magnitskiy’s unjust imprisonment and wrongful death. We will also continue to fully support the efforts of those in Russia who seek to bring these individuals to justice.
