Banned Movie Shows American-Born Billionaire, Bill Browder, Not As A Warrior against Russian Corruption, But As The Corrupted One Himself

Bill Browder, Bitchute
image_pdfimage_print

Bill Browder is an American-born hedge-fund manager who gave up his citizenship to avoid US taxes. He is the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management that, at one time, was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia. A few years ago, he was convicted in absentia by a Russian court for massive tax fraud, although he claims that the trial was a ruse to cover the fact that he was attempting to expose corruption within the Russian government. The reality of corruption on both sides is well established by the manner in which, in the 1990s, Russian officials sold government assets to Russian and Western oligarchs at pennies to the dollar of their true value. Nevertheless, Browder has found eager believers in his innocence among American politicians and media outlets who are calling for war against Russia. A documentary film, The Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes, shows Browder as the schemer in this issue rather than the crusader has been effectively banned in the US by Browder’s attorneys who threaten law suits against any theater or video outlet that considers presenting it to the public. -GEG

Summary by JW WIlliams
.
Andrei Nekrasov’s film, The Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes, is about the filmmaker’s journey as he set out to expose Russian police for murdering Sergei Magnitsky, a whistleblower against corruption, and for stealing $230-million from companies that were owned by American-born billionaire, Bill Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, the largest hedge-fund portfolio in Russian in the 1990s and early 2000s.
.
Instead, Nekrasov discovered discovered a convoluted financial crime that leads back to Bill Browder.  Browder used the crime and the death of Sergei Magnitsky, his accountant, to establish a new law, the Magnitsky Act, to seize assets and impose sanctions on Russia!  Critics blame the re-ignition of the cold war on Browder.
.
The film producer dug up facts that countered Browder’s claims that his companies were stolen by Russian police and were then used to steal $230 million in tax rebates from the Russian government, and that the police then beat Sergei Magnitsky to death.  Instead, the evidence pointed toward Browder having control over the companies when the tax fraud took place, indicating that he engineered the tax fraud.  In addition, the producer found evidence that Sergei Magnitsky was an accountant who worked for Browder for years, instead of a lawyer, as Browder claims, and that he died of a pre-existing heart condition while in prison, instead of being beaten to death by the police.
.
Nekrasov makes the case that Browder created a myth that Sergei Magnitsky was his lawyer and a whistleblower who was beaten to death by the police in gross violation of human rights, because the billionaire was trying to cover up the real crime wherein he used shell companies to fraudulently obtain a tax rebate while claiming that the companies had been stolen, and then he blamed the imaginary thieves for the tax fraud. Browder was convicted for tax fraud in a Russian court, in absentia, in 2013.
.
Browder’s company had ties to HSBC and reaped billions during the privatization period in Russia in the 1990s, after the communist government underwent cosmetic surgery to look like it was now in favor of free markets and private ownership.
.
Browder has access to all mainstream media outlets in America and Europe, and his version of the story is the only one presented to the public.
.
The second part of the story is that Browder used Magnitsky’s death, which Browder presented to the West as a case of a whistleblower being beaten to death in violation of human rights laws, to impose sanctions on Russian individuals through the Magnitsky Act.  Obama signed the Magnitsky Act in 2012 which enabled the US to punish foreign governments for human rights abuses and to seize their assets.  The Act, initially limited to Russia, now has been expanded by way of 2016’s Global Magnitsky Act, which enabled US sanctions worldwide.

it may not last long but for now it is available here on youtube:
/watch?v=yYxmnSaOmFY
sadly it is dubbed over in Russian, over the original English, which is nearly impossible to hear, but it is better than nothing. Maybe someone can translate it and upload the transcript to archive.org?

You can watch the movie right now!

It is embedded in this article:

This is third time the movie has been removed and re-uploaded since I found it in Philip Giraldi’s article. Many people are downloading the movie and it keeps popping up again.

Actually, they did cause him to die, because of their intentional neglect and abuse! That is a crime.. They might not have shot him, but they let him die a slow death, knowing that their neglect would cause this to come about. So it was THEIR INTENT to destroy this man! Not their intent to preserve his life. He was placed in uncommon and unsafe conditions in many ways that would threaten his or anyone’s life, if left there, as they did him. So they are NOT GUILTLESS! Regardless of the dates, that could be a matter of translation, they… Read more »

If these authorities in Russia, raided the offices and stole the records and seals and re-registered the companies, why would they not have changed dates that appear in the reports, to cause confusion and question of the entire incident so as not to prove their guilt!? This is what the people in the USA are doing now, trying to obfuscate and stall the truth from coming out by giving no information, redacted information, or changed information, so as to cause confusion and make it look like the facts are false!? This is a direct representation of what is occurring now… Read more »

I have to say that if Browder was lying, he would be in hiding, trying to avoid the press, the movie would not be made and he would not have had the confidence to go to a British court and present the facts and WIN! I think the Russians are trying to falsify the facts and dates so as to bring confusion and cast a shadow on the truth of what happened, making it appear that the whole accusations brought by Magnitzky was a lie. He was putting himself in jeopardy and certainly thought that he had the truth or… Read more »

If they didn’t need the seals and documents to re-register the companies, they would never have had to do the raid! This filmmaker is a liar or is being paid by the KGB or Russian govt. to lie and make it appear that

DB: You seem hostile- here are some counter-points: 1. Police raided the office to collect evidence. 2. Browder must stay in front of the press to keep the lie in place. 3. By your own logic, the policeman would never have sued Browder unless he is innocent. Browder did not win, the case was dismissed due to a technicality: the policeman was denied his claim because he has no reputation in England to defend. 4. If you watch the film, you will see that a woman named Starova went to the police and first reported fraud. 5. Watch the movie… Read more »
