Investigators have charged the two doctors ostensibly responsible for Sergei Magnitsky’s death.

“A criminal case against Larisa Litvinova and Dmitry Kratov, former staff of a Moscow pre-trial detention center…has been launched,” Vladimir Markin, Investigative Committee spokesman, told RIA Novosti.

Litvinova, who was Magnitsky’s doctor at Matrosskaya Tishina, is charged with causing the lawyer’s death by neglecting to render professional care. Her superior, Kratov, is charged with negligence.

“From the day he was arrested until the day he died, Mr. Magnitsky received inadequate medical evaluation and treatment,” said Physicians for Human Rights’s forensic expert pathologist Dr. Robert C. Bux in a press release emailed to The Moscow News on Monday morning.

“This calculated, deliberate and inhumane neglect undoubtedly led to his death and a criminal investigation must be launched leading to arrests and prosecution. Mr. Magnitsky’s family deserves to finally have some justice,” he said.
