Russia: Russian lawyer who met Trump Jr. says fears for her life over court case

Just imagine, we have gone through so much during these years of litigation. Out petitions were stalled for several months, others were simply not considered. Lawyers, the judge and prosecutor were replaced during the trial. The case was on hold for a year. Despite this we always insisted on starting the trial immediately. As early as 2013 we asked them to set a date to select the jury. The... Еще Attorney’s Office that represented the interests of the US government always managed to find a new excuse to delay this procedure. They never wanted a trial by jury, never. Though they claimed that they wanted it by all means. However, each time something happened to cause us a delay in the trial. So after all the struggles we have been through, do you think one can claim that we were treated favourably? We never had any preferential advantage. You know, I worked in New York with three teams composed of some of the best lawyers, lawyers who practiced law in the United States for not just a day, a year or even a decade [but much longer]. But they never came across anything like this before. So, what kind of favourable treatment are they talking about when we were dragged through all the pitfalls of the justice system?» As for the threat Mr. Browder possibly sees in me, I think it has to do with the fact that my team and myself, and everyone who helped me, who know the truth about this story from hard evidence, from the documents — we can tell our story in full, and make it heard by the public. That’s what he is afraid of. Just think of it, this story has had so many deaths in it by now. Too many people are gone and those deaths are related to just one person, Mr. Browder. And these were the people who could have told the full story of how everything happened. And it was Russian journalists who were the first to point out as many as four deaths in this story — the Rossiyskaya Gazeta published an article about it in 2011. But with time, Browder got smarter, and when in 2012, yet another 'victim' in Browder’s story wound up dead — the so-called 'informant' Mr. Pereplichny — Browder claimed it was done by the Kremlin. That’s how he spins it. He builds up tension using every opportunity — while some cases could have been genuine accidents, for example, or they could have been some mob shoot-outs that had nothing to do with him, but that’s how he puts the story together, piece by piece. And this makes me fear for my life. Because I know that they have been gathering information on me for at least a year. There are email exchanges — with my photographs, and my personal data — exchanges between Browder, the State Department, and Mr. Parker I mentioned earlier. I fully realise the degree of my responsibility for my words. I am always open for dialogue. I am always ready to share with people who are ready to listen to and analyse this situation.» Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who gained media attention over her meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in June 2016, stated that she fears for her life as a result of a recent law case she was involved in, during an interview in Moscow on Tuesday. In the interview, Veselnitskaya discussed the case of Prevezon Holdings, a real-estate company owned by a Russian businessman that was formerly accused of laundering money in New York property. The Prevezon Holdings case was settled in May with no admission of guilt by Prevezon. The case garnered international attention following the death of Russian lawyer and auditor Sergei Magnitsky in 2009, who claimed to have uncovered Prevezon's alleged involvement in a related tax-fraud scheme. Magnitsky carried out the work on behalf of investment advisory company Hermitage Capital. Veselnitskaya claimed that founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital, William Browder, sees a «threat» in her because she and h
