Podcast: Elena Panfilova on the Magnitsky case and civil society in Russia

Two years ago, Russian whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky died in jail. The campaign to hold those responsible for his death continues.

A year ago, Sergei’s mother collected a Transparency International Integrity Award on his behalf. These awards were created to recognise the courage and determination of the many individuals and organisations fighting corruption around the world.

Yesterday, the 2011 Integrity Award was presented in Vienna. Ahead of the ceremony, we talked to the head of Transparency International Russia Elena Panfilova about the Magnitsky case and the role of civil society in fighting corruption in Russia.
