Fourth Anniversary of Magnitskiy's Death

Press StatementJen Psaki
Department Spokesperson

Washington, DC

November 15, 2013


We honor the memory of Russian lawyer Sergey Magnitskiy, who died November 16, 2009 in a Moscow prison after making corruption allegations against Russian officials.

Despite widely publicized, credible evidence of criminal conduct resulting in Magnitskiy’s death, Russian authorities have failed to bring to justice those responsible. Instead, in a posthumous trial earlier this year, a Russian court found Magnitskiy guilty in a criminal case.

We continue to call for full accountability for those responsible for Magnitskiy’s unjust imprisonment and wrongful death and we will continue to fully support the efforts of those in Russia who seek to bring these individuals to justice, including through implementation of the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012.
