Report alleged corruption, torture in Russia lawyer prison death
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On November 28, 2011, an investigative report was released that explained in detail the denial of medical treatment to former Russian lawyer and alleged whistle-blower Sergei Magnitsky. The report alleged corruption by Russian officials in covering up the details of Magnitsky's death. Magnitsky had been arrested on charges of tax fraud, and the investigation against the lawyer continued following Magntisky's death due to a ruling that permits criminal cases to be proceeded against the dead.
