Brown Eyes Magnitsky Case

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he welcomed the Russian government’s investigation into the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, in a letter distributed by Hermitage Capital CEO William Browder.

“Our embassy in Moscow is in touch with the Russian authorities to emphasize that the investigation should be both full and transparent,” the letter said. Magnitsky, who represented Hermitage in tax cases brought against investment fund by the government, died in prison last month of heart failure after being denied medical care.
