0

MOSCOW: A Moscow court on Thursday convicted lawyer Sergei Magnitsky for tax evasion, despite his death in pre-trial detention in 2009, which became a symbol of prison abuses in Russia and strained ties with Washington. Judge Igor Alisov of the Tverskoy District Court found Magnitsky guilty along with his former boss, the United States-born British citizen William Browder, the head of the Hermitage Capital investment fund who was tried in absentia.
