Russia Exposed: The Sergei Magnitsky Affair

After Moscow-based tax attorney Sergei Magnitsky blew the whistle on a $230 million tax fraud in which his client, UK-based investment advisory firm Hermitage Capital Management, was one of the victims, he was taken into custody by the officials he accused, held without bail in primitive and deadly conditions until he died in his cell in 2009.

This session will look at evidence of corruption by the Russian judiciary, politicians, police, tax officials, bankers and the mafia, analyze the use of offshore banks and structures to assist them, including the alleged use of a company managed by BVI-based Commonwealth Trust Limited and accounts at Credit Suisse, and look at what is being done to hold participants accountable - both onshore and offshore.

Jurisdictions where funds were laundered include Switzerland, Cyprus, the BVI and Dubai.
