Equally Bill Browders lawyer dies in custody just before giving evidence in a court case against Bill Browder... but Putin gets the blame... how convenient for Mr Browder... not only can his lawyer not now testify against him but he can blame Putin for the incident, which is of course lapped up by western governments seeking dirt on Putin... real or imagined...
You mean accountant. Magnitsky was not any sort of lawyer. He was an accountant. The plot is cheesy like pulp fiction stories about LA gum shoes
investigating the murder of some accountant. The motive is always to shut them up before they can testify.
But in Russia Putin does it all. Including cases like Hermitage Capital where by offing Magnitsky he helps Browder. Note the same
schizophrenic template: Russians are too dumb to tie their shoes but are an existential threat.
