MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow City Court on Monday, May 21, upheld the decision to resume the investigation of Hermitage Capital Management auditor Sergei Magnitsky, who was charged with tax evasion and who died in an investigation prison.
The court thus rejected Magnitsky’s relatives’ cassation complaint in which they said that a resumption of the posthumous investigation would be unlawful and unconstitutional because “it is conducted not for the purpose of rehabilitation but for the purpose of accusation”.
The Interior Ministry also said that the investigators have no grounds for “Magnitsky’s rehabilitation”.
Magnitsky’s relatives claimed that further criminal proceedings after his death could be possible under law only for the purpose of his rehabilitation or with their consent. But neither is the case.
Having heard the arguments on both sides, the criminal board of the Moscow City Court ruled against the complaint.
