The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is concerned about the news, dated 28th of December, that the Tversky Regional Court of Moscow decided to dismiss the allegations against the only officially charged person with the death of lawyer Sergey Magnitsky.
This decision undermines the credibility of investigation of the Sergey Magnitsky's death, which occurred during his stay in prison. The move raises doubt as to commitment and will of the Russian authorities to conduct a transparent investigation into the Magnitsky case and, at the same time, as to the independence of the lawsuit.
