After Swiss AG is fired for corruption and a key prosecutor on the Magnitsky case in Switzerland is convicted of bribery from Russia, Swiss authorities announce they are returning 99% of Veselnitskaya’s client’s money that was frozen in Magnitsky case…
The Swiss also plan to return 100% of the frozen money belonging to Dmitry Klyuev, head of the Klyuev Organized Crime group & mastermind of the fraud that Sergei Magnitsky uncovered and was killed over. They are doing this even though Klyuev is sanctioned on the US Magnitsky list
And the Swiss are also intending to return between 55%-87% of the frozen money received by Vladlen Stepanov, husband of the tax official who authorized the $230m tax refund that Sergei was killed over. Both are sanctioned on US Magnitsky list. See link

BREAKING: Putin Opponent Alexei Navalny Poisoned by ‘Toxin’ in His Tea. Currently he is unconscious and in intensive care. This is extremely bad news…
Navalny was on a plane from Siberia to Mosocow and had to make an emergency landing in the Siberian city of Omsk when he lost consciousness. This is extremely worrying because few, if any, doctors in Omsk will have the expertise to deal with sophisticated KGB poisons
Vladimir Kara Murza, another Putin opponent was poisoned in Moscow in 2015. Fortunately then, he was treated by one of the top experts in Russia who saved his life. We can only hope that Alexey is able to fight off whatever poison they’ve administered on his own

BREAKING: UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to announce implementation of U.K. Magnitsky Act today. First group of sanctions will be applied to Sergei Magnitsky’s killers. Huge milestone in our 10 campaign for justice.…
Foreign Secretary Raab described Sergei Magnitsky as the “Solzhenitsyn of his time” for the horror he had to endure before dying at the hands of the brutal Russian state.
The U.K. Magnitsky Act will be a particularly powerful tool because every tin pot dictator wants to keep a mansion in Belgravia and send their kids to the best British boarding schools.

BREAKING: Dutch Parliament votes 95-54 passing resolution requiring Dutch government to begin implementing a Dutch Magnitsky Act by January 31 2020 if the EU continues to block the implementation on an EU Magnitsky Act ⁦…
All Dutch political parties voted in favor of the Dutch Magnitsky Act resolution except VVD (the government party) and PVV and FvD (the two fat right parties).
It’s understandable why the far right would want to cosy up to Putin, but for the main government party to do so makes no sense, particularly in Holland, a country that lost nearly 200 innocent citizens from a Russian missile on MH17

BREAKING: A Swiss Federal Police officer who specialized in Russian money laundering (and was the officer on the Swiss Magnitsky case) has been found guilty by a Swiss court of accepting favors from Russia including a hunting trip in Siberia…
This shocking rot inside the Swiss law enforcement system might explain why the money laundering case that we reported to the Swiss authorities in 2011 in connection to Magnitsky’s murder still hasn’t been taken to court 8 years later.
The other interesting part of the bent Swiss Federal Police officer story is that on one of his unauthorized trips to Moscow, he had a secret meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya while her client’s assets were frozen in Switzerland by his department…

Shocking development. On April 15-19 Interpol’s Commision for the Control of Files will consider Russia’s 7th attempt to use Interpol channels to have me arrested after Interpol rejected Russia’s previous 6 attempts as politically motivated.
The Russian official responsible for the current and previous illegitimate attempts to abuse Interpol in my case, Petr Gorodov, is now a member of Interpol’s Commission for the Control of Files, the body that decides whether or not to kick out illegitimate notices
How can a proven serial abuser of Interpol be on the body that is supposed to protect Interpol from illegitimate and politically motivated arrests warrants?

There’s no longer any dispute that Saudi Arabian officials killed Jamal Khashoggi. The US, UK, and Canada must immediately apply the Magnitsky Act to those who participated in, ordered and covered up the killing. All countries who don’t have a Magnitsky Act should pass one ASAP
For those unfamiliar with the Magnitsky Act, it freezes assets and bans visa of people involved in torture, extrajudicial killing and other gross human rights abuses. It would have a dramatic effect of wealthy Saudi princes
Applying the Magnitsky Act to the people who ordered Khashoggi’s murder would also send a chilling message to other tin pot dictators that there will be grave consequences for these types of atrocities
