Sergei Magnitsky, a young Russian lawyer, blew the whistle on a $230 million tax fraud involving senior Russian Government officials. He testified against the people involved, and was subsequently arrested, tortured, denied medical care, and murdered in custody when he refused to change or withdraw his testimony. Those responsible for the crimes he uncovered and those responsible for his death have yet to be punished. The movie being premiered, “The Magnitsky Files: Organized Crime Inside the Russian Government” goes into detail of how the Russian police who killed Sergei Magnitsky have been working on an intimate basis with organized criminals, how they kill people to cover up their crimes.

Participants:

Senator John McCain, co-sponsor of the “Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2011” (S1039) David Kramer, Director, Freedom House and former US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy William Browder, head of the global campaign for justice for Sergei Magnitsky
