En god nyhet i fallet Magnitskij: den oklarhet som fanns kring ett Sverige-besök av William Browder, Magnitskijs arbetsgivare fram till dennes död 2009, är till synes undanröjd. Kremls försök att via Interpol begränsa Browders rörlighet har fallit, eftersom Interpol har avskrivit den ryska begäran om ett gripande som ogrundad.
advisory said in a press release seen by Interfax on Friday.Today the Swedish police deleted Russia’s request seeking the detention of William Browder, leader of the international campaign for justice in lawyer Sergei Magnitsky’s case, dismissing it as politically motivated, according
to the press release.The Swedish police informed Browder’s legal team of their decision in a letter, it said. Any information concerning Browder was removed from Swedish law enforcement services’ database on instructions issued by Interpol’s General
Secretariat, which recognized the Russian request as politically motivated and refused to grant it citing the Interpol Constitution, according to the press release.
The Swedish police assured Browder’s lawyers that he would not be detained at Russia’s request, which Interpol says runs counter to its constitution, the Hermitage Capital press service said, referring to the Swedish police’s statement.
