DEFENESTRATION

Magnitsky Family Lawyer ‘Thrown From Building’

The lawyer representing the family of an anti-Putin-government, anti-corruption attorney who was murdered in prison in 2009 was reportedly thrown from the fourth floor of his apartment building in Moscow. According to Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder, a noted Putin critic, Nikolai Gorokhov is in the intensive-care unit of Botkin hospital in Moscow with severe head injuries after allegedly being defenestrated from his building, BBC’s Daniel Sandford reported on Tuesday. In addition to representing the family of the late Sergei Magnitsky, Gorokhov reportedly served as a witness for ex-U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s separate case probing allegedly corrupt Russian businessmen and officials.
