Browder: Now, the government of Canada has the opportunity to exclude Russia from Interpol as well as Russia was suspended from the Olympic games
British businessman William Browder urged the canadian government to raise the issue of excluding Russia from Interpol. He stated this in an interview on CBS.
According to him, Russia uses Interpol constantly in their interests. Thus in the Constitution of this international organization has a clause that allows you to exclude from its membership countries using it to their advantage.
“This item has never been used. Now, however, the government of Canada has the opportunity to exclude Russia from Interpol as well as Russia was suspended from the Olympic games,” Browder recalled.
He said that Interpol exists for law enforcement, not for “the pursuit of political enemies. It should not be a weapon of dictatorship.”
Browder, head of investment Fund Hermitage Capital Management, has devoted much of his life exposing corruption inside the Kremlin and revenge for the death of the lawyer of Fund of Sergey Magnitsky, reminiscent of the TV channel.
Browder was one of the initiators of the adoption in the United States, Canada and several other countries have laws that provide for sanctions against persons implicated in human rights violations. These laws are named in honor of the deceased Magnitsky.
In Russia, Browder was convicted in absentia twice and both times was sentenced to nine years in prison (on charges of tax fraud and tax evasion). He said that he has proof of the withdrawal in Europe of the proceeds from the fraudulent actions of Russian citizens on $230 million.
19 November 2018, the Prosecutor’s office of Russia said that the investigation examines the version of the involvement of Browder to a violent death Magnitsky in a Moscow jail.
