Находящемуся в США сообщнику Дмитрия Клюева по «делу Магнитского» Андрею Павлову, вручен ордер на допрос перед Большим жюри в рамках уголовного дела расследуемого прокуратурой США

 

22 сентября 2016 года – Прибывшему в США сообщнику ранее осужденного Дмитрия Клюева Андрею Павлову вручен ордер для обязательной явки в американский суд по уголовному делу о мошенничестве и отмывании похищенных из российского бюджета 5,4 миллиардов рублей  – масштабного преступления, раскрытого юристом фонда Hermitage Сергеем Магнитским.

 

Согласно данным американского суда, Андрей Павлов несколько дней назад прибыл в США для участия в конференции в Вашингтоне.

 

По прибытии  ему была вручена повестка Окружного суда США по Южному округу Нью-Йорка с требованием предстать на этой неделе перед членами Большого жюри присяжных в здании Окружного суда для дачи показаний по уголовному делу о мошенничестве с использованием современных средств связи, мошенничестве в банковской сфере и легализации доходов от преступной деятельности.

 

«Большое жюри присяжных проводит расследование о возможных нарушениях криминальных законов, вовлекающих мошенничество с использованием современных средств связи, …сговор в банковском мошенничестве, … и/или отмывание денег, нарушающее 18 пункт кодекса США параграфы 1956, 1957», – говорится во врученном Андрею Павлову судебном уведомлении.

 

Павлова также обязали представить в американский суд документы, проливающие свет на многомиллиардное мошенничество и его укрывательство, в том числе его переписку с сообщниками.

 

В судебном ордере от  15 сентября 2016 года содержится уведомление о последствиях его неисполнения, включая уголовную и гражданскую ответственность. Андрей Павлов был также извещен о его праве на адвоката.

 

О роли Андрея Павлова в составе преступной группы Клюева, похитившей у россиян свыше 5,4 миллиардов рублей, сообщил в своих показаниях Сергей Магнитский. Однако российские следователи освободили Павлова от уголовной ответственности, арестовав Сергея Магнитского, которого подвергли  истязаниям в следственном изоляторе, где он был убит в возрасте 37 лет. Дело о смерти Магнитского было прекращено Следственным комитетом РФ три года спустя за «отсутствием события преступления».

 

Глава организованной преступной группы Дмитрий Клюев был ранее внесен в американский санкционный список, вследствие чего ему запрещен въезд в США.

 

В свою очередь Андрей Павлов продолжал путешествовать по миру. В апреле этого года он был замечен на анти-Магнитской акции в Брюсселе. В сентябре он прибыл в США, где ему и был вручен ордер о явке для показаний по уголовному делу.

Британский суд приговорил Павла Карпова к трем месяцам тюрьмы

Британский суд приговорил Павла Карпова к трем месяцам тюрьмы

 

5 сентября 2016 года – Высокий суд правосудия г. Лондона приговорил бывшего следователя МВД России Павла Карпова к трем месяцам тюрьмы за неуважение к суду. Судья Филлипс признал Карпова «виновным в неуважении к суду в виде неисполнения судебного решения», за что приговорил его «к трем месяцам содержания в тюрьме Ее Величества» Королевы Великобритании.

 

Судебное решение вынесено в связи с требованием Hermitage Сapital Management к Павлу Карпову об уплате им долга в размере, превышающем 870 тысяч долларов США в счет возмещения судебных издержек Hermitage Сapital Management по защите от диффамационного иска Карпова.

 

Несмотря на скромный доход следователя, вышедший на пенсию в 2012 году Павел Карпов нанял дорогостоящих юристов из ведущей английской фирмы «Олсванг» и предъявил к Hermitage Capital Management диффамационный иск. В 2013 году Высокий суд правосудия г.Лондона отказал Карпову в иске, указав на  злоупотребление юрисдикцией и судебной процедурой, и обязал его возместить расходы Hermitage Сapital Management.

 

В июле 2016 года компания Hermitage Capital Management обратилась в суд с просьбой истребовать у Карпова сведения о его доходах и имуществе в целях погашения им долга. Несмотря на несколько уведомлений, Павел Карпов в суд не явился. Вынося решение в отношении Карпова о неуважении к суду, судья Филлипс предоставил  Карпову срок до 1 декабря 2016 года для явки в суд и предоставления запрашиваемых сведений, в противном случае ордер об аресте Карпова вступит в силу.

 

Ранее, в апреле 2013 года, в связи с ролью Карпова в деле Сергея Магнитского он был включен в санкционный список США, а в 2014 году – в санкционный список Европейского парламента. В апреле этого года Павел Карпов принимал участие в анти-Магнитской акции в Брюсселе вместе с членом группы Клюева – Андреем Павловым, участвовавшим в исках о фиктивных задолженностях российских компаний фонда Hermitage, для дальнейшего хищения 5,4 миллиардов рублей из российского бюджета  – преступления, раскрытого Сергеем Магнитским, о котором он дал показания до своего ареста и убийства в следственном изоляторе.

UK Judge Sentences ex Russian Police Officer in Magnitsky Case to 3 Months in Prison for Contempt of Court

 

5 September 2016 – A UK High Court Judge, the Honourable Mr Justice Phillips has sentenced ex Russian police officer Pavel Karpov to three months in prison for contempt of court.

 

The British court found Pavel Karpov, a 39-year old ex Russian Interior Ministry officer, in contempt of court for failing to appear before the court to answer questions and provide information about his assets in a £660,000 ($877,800) judgment against him for costs ordered by the court in his failed libel action against Hermitage Capital Management, Bill Browder and Jamison Firestone in relation to the Magnitsky case.

 

Justice Phillips concluded Karpov “has been guilty of contempt of court by disobeying the order of Master Eastman” and Karpov should be “committed to Her Majesty’s Prison for a period of 3 months.”

 

Pavel Karpov was one of the main figures in the fraud that Sergei Magnitsky uncovered. We are committed to continue seeking justice through all legal means,” said William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital Management and leader of the global Magnitsky justice movement.

 

The UK contempt of court case against Pavel Karpov stems from Karpov’s non-payment of costs of a UK libel action that Karpov himself had initiated four years ago in the UK High Court.

 

Pavel Karpov’s 2012 UK libel suit was a landmark case of foreign libel tourism. One year after it was filed, in October 2013, the UK High Court threw it out as abuse of court process and/or jurisdiction. The UK High Court ordered Pavel Karpov to pay Hermitage Capital Management over £850,000 ($1,130,500) in costs for the libel proceedings. Over £660,000 ($877,800) of that amount remains unpaid by Pavel Karpov.

 

In July 2016, Hermitage Capital Management sought the court’s assistance to recover the debt from Pavel Karpov. Karpov failed to appear in court and, after several notices, the court found him in contempt.

 

The Honourable Mr Justice Phillips suspended the Committal Order to the 1st December 2016. If Karpov fails to appear before the Court on 1 December 2016 then an arrest warrant will be issued for him .

 

Former Russian police officer Pavel Karpov had an annual salary of less than £10,000, yet was able to hire a top UK law firm, Olswang, to represent him in his  failed libel action.

 

On 12 April 2013, the US Treasury added Pavel Karpov to the financial sanctions list under the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012 for his role in the Magnitsky case.

 

On 2 April 2014, the European Parliament included Pavel Karpov on its list of individuals to be sanctioned based on their role in the Magnitsky case.

 

Sergei Magnitsky was Hermitage’s lawyer who uncovered the US$230 million fraud and testified about the complicity of Russian officials in it. He was falsely arrested, detained for 358 days without trial, tortured and killed in Russian police custody at the age of 37.

 

The events of this case emblematic of corruption and human rights abuse in Putin’s Russia are described in the New-York Times best-seller “Red Notice” by William Browder and in a series of campaign videos on Youtube channel “Russian Untouchables.”

Magnitsky’s Widow Asks Swiss Jewellery Company Chopard to Disassociate Itself From Moscow Film Festival That Plans to Screen Anti-Magnitsky Propaganda Film

Magnitsky’s Widow Asks Swiss Jewellery Company Chopard to Disassociate Itself From Moscow Film Festival That Plans to Screen Anti-Magnitsky Propaganda Film

 

21 June 2016 – The widow of Sergei Magnitsky, the Russian lawyer killed in Russian police custody in 2009, has written to Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, CEO of Chopard, a super luxury Swiss watch and jewellery company, asking for Chopard to reconsider its sponsorship of the Moscow Film Festival which recently added Andrei Nekrasov’s anti-Magnitsky propaganda film to its program on 23-30 June 2016.

 

“I urge you to not associate your fine brand and reputation of your company with the people who killed my husband and benefited from the serious corruption he had uncovered, and to publicly disassociate with the film festival unless its organizers remove this film from the program. This film has been thoroughly discredited and described as propaganda,” said Sergei Magnitsky‘s widow in her letter to Chopard.

 

No reply from Chopard has been received.

 

The anti-Magnitsky film by Russian filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov has been endorsed by senior Russian Government officials, including Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian General Prosecutor Yuri Chaika. The film has been promoted by perpetrators and beneficiaries of the US$230 million fraud that Sergei Magnitsky exposed. These include: Pavel Karpov, the former Russian Interior Ministry officer who had custody of the documents used in the crime; Andrei Pavlov, lawyer for the Russian criminal group who took part in sham court proceedings as part of the fraud; and Denis Katsyv, son of a Russian government official, whose assets have been seized in the US and Switzerland for suspicion of laundering the proceeds of the US$230 million fraud.

 

It is surprising that Chopard would associate itself with this sordid spectacle. They should withdraw their funding for this effort. It’s one thing for compromised Russians to posthumously defame a Russian hero who gave his life for his principles. It’s entirely another when this is done relying on sponsorship funds from a reputable Western company like Chopard,” said William Browder, leader of the global Magnitsky Justice movement.

 

The anti-Magnitsky film by Andrei Nekrasov is one in a series of Russian propaganda and intimidation efforts seeking to fight Magnitsky sanctions and to avoid accountability for the torture and murder of Magnitsky and for the US$230 million theft he had uncovered. Prior to this, there has been a series of four propaganda films produced and aired on Russian federal TV stations in which Browder is portrayed as a CIA agent working to destroy Russia. Other methods have included opening new criminal cases against William Browder, as well as Russian anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny who has been vocally supporting justice for Sergei Magnitsky.

Russian General Prosecutor Ignores Sergei Magnitsky’s Mother’s Complaint Against Him for Slander

Russian General Prosecutor Ignores Sergei Magnitsky’s Mother’s Complaint Against Him for Slander

 

16 June 2016 – Russian General Prosecutor Chaika refused to respond to Sergei Magnitsky’s mother’s application challenging his posthumous slander against her son. Ms Magnitskaya’s application highlighted new information on the cover up since 2008 of perpetrators of the US$230 Million crime her son had uncovered, by the General Prosecutor’s Office and specifically by Chaika’s aid, prosecutor Bumazhkin. The cover up involved the early exoneration of all perpetrators of the theft of budget funds from any liability, allowing them to conceal evidence and launder the stolen funds in the year following the theft.

On December 14, 2016, Yuri Chaika accused Sergei Magnitsky of being a perpetrator of the $230 million fraud that Magnitsky had uncovered. His accusation was published in an “open letter” in the Russian newspaper Kommersant.

Magnitsky’s mother filed a formal application to Yuri Chaika stating that his claim is not based on facts, is contradicted by available documents, and sought the full disclosure of material that Chaika relied on to make the posthumous accusation against her son.

Prosecutor Chaika failed to respond to Ms Magnitskaya. Instead, prosecutor A.V. Kulikov of the 2nd unit of the Russian General Prosecutor’s Office in charge of highly important cases signed a formal reply stating that Magnitsky’s mother does not have the procedural standing to receive any documents.

“Your application to provide documents and on other matters have been considered…The investigative body does not have documents to verify that you have a standing in the criminal case…Therefore, your client and you do not have the right to access the materials of the preliminary investigation,” said prosecutor Kulikov.

The application on behalf of Mrs Magnitskaya to which Chaika failed to respond, said:

“Despite the numerous sufferings and torture that he[Magnitsky] had been subjected to by investigation in detention, he… repeated the testimony given before his arrest about the complicity of Interior Ministry officials in the crime against its citizens  – the theft of 5.4 billion rubles [$230 mln], and the crime against his client – the theft of the three companies of the Hermitage fund, and filed complaints against the violations of his rights committed personally by you and by your subordinates in the General Prosecutor’s Office.

 His lawyers did not ask him to sign documents about unknown events, but instead filed complaints, including complaints addressed to you personally, about the violations of his rights in detention, the unlawful deprivation of medical care, the pressure exerted to break his will and force him to give false testimony.

 Magnitsky did not sign false returns and forged documents and did not pass them to Gasanov and Markelov to use in the fraudulent refund of 5.4 billion rubles from the budget; these documents were manufactured by members of the criminal organization exposed by Magnitsky which comprised officials of the Interior Ministry and General Prosecutor’s Office who protected this organization, that for many years has specialized in the illegal tax refunds at the Moscow tax offices no 25 and no 28.

 Thanks to the investigation by Magnitsky, conducted for his client – the Hermitage fund, the theft of 5.4 billion rubles was uncovered, notified to you on 25 July 2008 …seeking to bring those complicit to justice, in response to which your aid A.K.Bumazhkin sent a reply dated 18.08.2008 that the investigation was suspended “due to the inability of suspects to participate” in the case, and then closed in relation to Markelov, Kurochkin and Khlebnikov …“due to the absence of crime in their actions.” Your aid also informed that the “outcomes of the investigation were under control of the General Prosecutor’s Office.

 Therefore, under the control and with the knowledge of the General Prosecutor’s Office, of which you are in charge, the perpetrators who committed the grandiose theft from the budget of 5.4 billion rubles, remained for a long time at large, had an opportunity to destroy evidence of their crime and continue it through unrestrained bank transfers designed to launder funds stolen from their fellow citizens.”

Sergei Magnitsky was Hermitage’s lawyer who uncovered the US$230 million fraud and testified about the complicity of Russian officials in it. He was falsely arrested, detained for 358 days without trial, tortured and killed in Russian police custody at the age of 37.

The events of this case are described in the New-York Times best-seller “Red Notice” by William Browder and in a series of campaign videos on Youtube channel “Russian Untouchables.”
