Lithuania opens analog of 'Magnitsky List'

Gomel Pravda
The analog of 'Magnitsky] that consists of 49 Russians banned from the entry to Lithuania due to the violations of the human rights and money-laundering was published at the website of the Migration Department of Lithuania.
Particularly, Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, Aleksandr Bastyrkin, the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Oleg Logunov, the deputy head of the Investigative Department of the Russian Interior Ministry who run the case of Sergey Magnitsky in 2009 are included on the list.

Earlier it was reported on the imposing of the sanctions against 49 unwanted Russians within the 'Magnitsky Law'. However, Lithuania did not publish the list that time.
The Lithuanian analog of the 'Magnitsky Law' was adopted in November 2017 by the Seimas, signed by Dalia Grybauskaite and came into force since January 2018.

The legislation, informally known as the Sergei Magnitsky Law, is named after a lawyer who died in a Russian prison under mysterious circumstances after exposing one of the biggest government corruption scandals during President Vladimir V. Putin’s time in power.
