That this House commemorates the life of Sergei Magnitsky, an anti-corruption lawyer arrested and tortured to death in Russian custody on 16 November 2009, while defending a British organisation investing in Russia; condemns the fact that no investigation into his torture in custody or into police corruption has been opened in Russia despite appeals from leading human rights and anti-corruption organisations and foreign governments; notes that a year since his death in custody not a single Russian official has been charged or tried despite the well-documented record of abuse, but that Russian policemen involved have been promoted and honoured; further notes that the European Parliament, the US Congress and Canadian parliaments have all discussed legislation imposing visa and economic sanctions on the involved Russian officials; and calls on the Government to exclude from the UK and freeze assets of those Russian officials involved in Sergei Magnitsky's arrest, torture and death and the US$230 million corruption he uncovered.
