MOSCOW, June 21 – RAPSI. Investigation is finished into the case of Dmitry Kratov, who served as the deputy head of the Moscow pretrial detention center where Hermitage Capital counsel Sergei Magnitsky died, the Investigative Committee's spokesperson told on Thursday.

Kratov was charged with negligence resulting in Magnitsky’s death.

Investigators gathered sufficient evidence to submit the case to the Prosecutor General’s Office. The prosecutor’s office will consider whether or not to file it with court.

Magnitsky, an auditor for the Hermitage Capital Management Fund, was charged with masterminding large-scale corporate tax evasion. He died in a pretrial detention center on November 16, 2009 after spending a year behind bars. His death sparked a public outcry and triggered amendments to the Criminal Code and a reshuffling of officials in the penal system.

Larisa Litvinova, the detention center’s doctor, was also charged in the case. She has been released and escaped prosecution as the statute of limitations has expired.
