World-Check Blacklists 60 Russians Connected to Magnitsky's Case

London-based World-Check, a risk analysis company that maintains a worldwide list of individuals potentially linked to criminal corruption, has blacklisted 60 individuals allegedly linked to the case of Sergey Magnitsky, a lawyer who leveled corruption allegations against a number of security officials shortly before dying in pre-trial detention in a Moscow prison. The names, which include those of some of Russia's most senior law enforcement officials, were taken from a list compiled earlier this year by U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin, who called on the U.S. State Department to deny entry visas to these individuals for their alleged involvement in Magnitsky's death. World-Check's list is used by 49 out of 50 major international banks to screen potential clients.
