Russia Is A Seven: Sergei Magnitsky's Murder Officially Swept Under The Rug

HT: Big E

As long time tilb readers know, we've been following the murder of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in Russian prison. He basically helped uncover a massive tax fraud/embezzlement by Russian officials only to have the tables turned on him. The officials turned around and charged him with theft, jailed and tortured him then had him murdered in prison. Bill Browder of Hermitage Capital (who was Magnitsky's relevant client in uncovering the original fraud) has spoken out loudly only to have his complaints drowned out by silence.

The NY Times gave the story a few last breaths of life today.
