Documentary film screening & Hearing on the Magnitsky case

Place: House of Literature, The Wergeland Hall, Oslo

Time: Thursday 27 September 14:00-16:00

Den norske Helsingforskomité skal arrangere høring om Magnitsky-saken torsdag 27 september klokken 14-16 på Litteraturhuset. Alle i Amnesty Blindern er selvfølgelig hjertelig velkommen!

Litt info om saken: 
Sergei Magnitsky was a tax lawy
er and auditor who worked for the Moscow legal and audit firm, Firestone Duncan. He discovered that senior Interior Ministry officers had stolen the investment companies of his client, the Hermitage Fund, and then went on to rob the Russian treasury of 5.4 billion rubles ($230 million).
Russian Interior Ministry officers then intentionally arrested him and created torturous and ultimately deadly conditions for Magnitsky in pre-trial detention, in an attempt to get him to change his testimony implicating them in theft and corruption related crimes. As a result, Magnitsky died on 16 November 2009.
The treatment of Magnitsky and the efforts of covering-up massive crimes have stirred strong reactions from around the world. According to EU Council chief Herman Van Rompuy, Russia’s international reputation is at stake over the murder of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
