Who was Sergei Leonidovich Magnitsky? Wikipedia Profile

Sergei Leonidovich Magnitsky (Russian: Сергей Леонидович Магнитский; 8 April 1972 – 16 November 2009) was a Russian attorney whose arrest and death in police custody generated international media attention and launched an investigation into allegations of abuse...
In November 2010, Magnitsky was given a posthumous award from Transparency International for integrity. Magnitsky, according to the awards committee, "believed in the rule of law and died for his belief."[6] A film produced to highlight Magnitsky's persecution has been shown before in Canadian, German, Estonian, Polish, British, and European parliaments and the American congress.[6] Hermitage's CEO, Bill Browder, created the film to help persuade foreign governments to issue a visa ban on sixty individuals believed to be involved in the scandal and cover up.[6]
