Product description

Review

"Reads like a classic thriller, with an everyman hero alone and in danger in a hostile foreign city ... but it's all true, and it's a story that needs to be told." Lee Child "The story of Sergei Magnitsky's life and death is a shocking true-life thriller, and Bill Browder was the man to write it." Tom Stoppard "A sizzling account of Mr Browder's rise, fall and metamorphosis from bombastic financier to renowned human-rights activist ... Reads more like a financial thriller than a real-life story." The Economist "An unburdening, a witness statement and a thriller all at the same time ... Electrifying ... One heck of a read." -- Giles Whittell The Times "An expose of years of state-sponsored torture and murder ... this story of courage combined with a dash of obsessiveness is about the real here and now." -- Sonia Purnell The Independent --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Bill Browder, founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005, when he was denied entry to the country after exposing widespread corruption. Since 2009, when his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky was murdered in Russian police custody, he has been leading a global campaign to expose human rights abuses endemic in Russia. Consequentially, the 'Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act' was signed into US law in 2012, imposing visa bans and asset freezes on certain officials involved in Magnitsky's death. Browder is currently working to have similar legislation passed across the European Union and Canada. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Red Notice is a fabrication, there is very little that can be verified as true.
Reviewed in Australia on 15 August 2020
Bill Browder's "non-fiction" book is an elaborate fabrication, designed to prevent Browder answering allegations of tax-evasion and securities fraud in Russia. Browder has used highly paid PR consultants in order to appeal to the emotion of the reader, while if anybody cares to look for solid, concrete evidence, in the book, it is sorely lacking. In addition, the book is full of racist and sexist anecdotes, that Browder thinks he can get away with because "Russians" are just "like that".

In 2015, after accusing a Russian national Denis Katsyv of receiving funds from the so-called "Russian Tax Fraud", Browder was subpoenaed by Katsyv, and forced to provide a Deposition under oath in New York on 15 April 2015.

What was revealed under cross examination?

1/. Magnitsky was not a "lawyer" who he hired in 2007, but rather his tax accountant who had worked for Firestone-Duncan since 1996 .

2/. Hermitage and Magnitsky had been under investigation since 2002, for using tax minimisation schemes in the region of Kalmyka, by taking advantage of a disabled employment scheme, hiring disabled Afghanistan war veterans as stock market analysts.

3/. Magnitsky never uncovered any "Russian Tax Fraud", he read about it in the media, when "Kommersant" published that Hermitage was under investigation on 4 April 2008. He never accused any officials, Browder merely says that the contents of the original Russian interview after Magnitsky was brought in for questioning on 6 June 2008, and again in October, said so. Having seen the documents on own Browder's web site, and I am proficient in the Russian language, I see no such allegations.

4/. Magnitsky was NOT murdered, there is no evidence whatsoever that Magnitsky was beaten to death, he died of acute pancreatitis, due to the poor conditions in the pre-trial detention. Conditions from which he could have been released had Browder just paid up the $40 million in back taxes and fines. Browder, of course, was safe in London, and had not even seen Magnitsky, according to Magnitsky himself, for over four years.

If anyone finds this shocking or offensive, you can easily find Browder's videotaped Deposition on Youtube, search for "Browder Deposition", it has five one hour segments, Parts 1 and 2 alone are sufficient. This author has used his power and influence to tell cynical politicians what they want to hear, because well, who doesn't want to sanction Russia, right?
