Russia to Charge William Browder With Tax Evasion, Might Seek Extradition

Bloomberg reports that Russia may charge William Browder with tax evasion, and then seek his extradition, which would likely be rejected by the United Kingdom. "Browder, 47, was the biggest foreign investor in Russia when authorities stripped him of his visa in 2005, citing national security concerns. He has been campaigning for the prosecution of Russian officials he blames for the death of Sergei Magnitsky, the Hermitage lawyer who died in November 2009 after almost a year in pre-trial detention. Before his death, Magnitsky said he was abused and denied medical care in an effort to force him to drop fraud allegations against officials. "We have been fighting for the last year and a half to sanction and prosecute the officers who killed him and this latest action is a clear retaliation against us for doing so," Browder said by phone from London today." Bloomberg May 16, 2011.
