New Video Sheds Further Light on Corruption in Russia

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) - Friends of the late Russian anti-corruption lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, who died in pre-trial detention in November 2009, today announced the launch of a new YouTube video, the first in the Russian Untouchables series. Over the coming months, this series will include several exposés on official corruption in Russia. The first video can be found in English and Russian versions:

Jamison Firestone, Magnitsky's former law partner, said today, "These videos will focus on the role of senior Russian Interior Ministry officers and other government officials in orchestrating Sergei Magnitsky's false arrest, imprisonment, torture and death in prison. It is important that the truth is known about what happened to Sergei, why he was imprisoned for exposing official corruption on a massive scale and how those he targeted are spending their new-found wealth."
