Statement by Bill Browder on 5th Anniversary of Sergei Magnitsky's Killing in Russian Police Custody

Dear Friends and supporters,
 
Today marks the 5th anniversary of Sergei Magnitsky's killing in Russian police custody. Sergei was my lawyer who was murdered because he exposed one of the largest government corruption schemes in Russian history. After he testified against the police officers involved, he was arrested by the same officers and was then systematically tortured for 358 days. On November 16, 2009 he went into critical condition and instead of being treated, he was put in an isolation cell and beaten by eight riot guards with rubber batons until he was dead at the age of 37.
