U.K. Eyes Magnitsky Suspects

Britain has joined the United States in taking steps to bar entry to Russian officials implicated in the 2009 jail death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office announced strengthened immigration rules in its annual human rights report this week that would make it difficult for Russians accused of human rights violations in the Magnitsky case to enter Britain.

The U.S. State Department last year blacklisted 60 Russian officials implicated in Magnitsky's death, and U.S. lawmakers are considering legislation that would bar people accused of human rights abuses at home from entering the United States.
