"Sergei Magnitsky’s family were denied an independent autopsy by the Russian authorities, who claimed he died of natural causes. Members of Moscow’s independent Prison Oversight Commission, a local watchdog group, described Magnitsky’s death as “intentional” and “murder” and highlighted the role of government officials and prison administrators in his torture. Since the death, a number of prison officials have been fired, but no one has been prosecuted for his torture or death, nor for participating in the corruption he exposed."

On this basis, I urge you to immediately cancel and permanently withdraw the U.S visa privileges of all those involved in this crime, along with their dependents and family members. Doing so will provide some measure of justice for the late Mr. Magnitsky and his surviving family and will send an important message to corrupt officials in Russia and elsewhere that the U.S. is serious about combating foreign corruption and the harm it does. It will also help to protect U.S. companies operating in Russia who risk falling prey to similar schemes in the future.

Подробности по-русски.

Вообще-то ЕС не мешало бы подключиться. За погибшую Трифонову на таком уровне не вступятся, конечно, но если пойдет атака по всем фронтам, это может на общую ситуацию повлиять.
