Karpov v Browder & Ors  EWHC 3071 – ‘Magnitsky case’ libel action struck out
In an important decision concerning the Jameel doctrine as applied to foreign claimants, Mr Justice Simon has struck out as an abuse of process libel claims brought in England by Pavel Karpov, a retired Russian policeman, against the UK-domiciled Bill Browder and others. In the same judgment the Court ruled that the Defendants were not in a position to justify their allegation that the claimant was involved in Mr Magnitsky’s torture and murder.
