ST. PETERSBURG, March 20 (Itar-Tass) – The chief of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, believes that it would be a great honor for him to be included in the Magnitsky List, should that ever happen.
“I shall regard it as a great honor to be on that list,” he said.
Bastrykin said that he was speculating about his likely inclusion in the Magnitsky List because the IC had opened criminal proceedings against U.S. citizens over the death of adopted Russian children in the United States.
He also pointed out that the Investigative Committee had never been in charge of the Magnitsky case. It did investigate the circumstances of his death and that case was taken to court.
