Last Words by Sergey Mag­nit­skiy in Russ­ian Court Reveal Human and Legal Rights Abuse

20 Novem­ber 2009 – The last words by lawyer Sergey Mag­nit­skiy, made in a Russ­ian court, reveal vio­la­tions of his legal and human rights in breach of the Euro­pean Con­ven­tion for the Pro­tec­tion of Human Rights and Fun­da­men­tal Free­doms and Russ­ian law.

In his last pub­lic state­ment, Sergey Mag­nit­skiy named the vio­la­tions of Arti­cle 3 of the Con­ven­tion – “Pro­hi­bi­tion of tor­ture” – that states that “no one shall be sub­jected to tor­ture or to inhu­man or degrad­ing treat­ment or pun­ish­ment,” and of Arti­cle 6 – “Right to a fair trial” – that spec­i­fies the right for “ade­quate time and facil­i­ties for the prepa­ra­tion of his defence”. He accused the court of con­don­ing these vio­la­tions and refus­ing him his basic human dignity.
