NPR: Lawyer’s Death In Russian Prison Sparks Haunted Anger

December 19, 2009

Sergei Mag­nit­sky, a lawyer for a London-based fund that was once the biggest in Rus­sia, wrote to his mother of wast­ing away from an ago­niz­ing ill­ness with­out proper med­ical care in a crowded Moscow prison. He was await­ing trial for tax-evasion charges. But Mag­nit­sky even­tu­ally died in prison, just 11 days after his last let­ter reached his mother. Magnitsky’s story has hit a nerve in Rus­sia, where mem­o­ries linger of the mil­lions who died of cold, star­va­tion and neglect in the harsh Soviet gulag. Host Scott Simon talks about the Mag­nit­sky case with NPR’s Anne Gar­rels.

December 11, 2009

In Novem­ber, a 37-year-old tax lawyer named Sergei Mag­nit­sky died in a Russ­ian jail cell.

We’ll speak with Wash­ing­ton Post for­eign cor­re­spon­dent Philip P. Pan, who just returned from Rus­sia and has writ­ten about the case. You can read his arti­cle about Magnitsky’s let­ters here.
