Prosecutors claim that indicted attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya fabricated supposed findings from a mutual legal assistance treaty. @PeteBrush dug up that Russian MLAT, and it's signed by "S.A. Karapetyan."
A top Russian prosecutor with that name died in a copter crash last year.
Just as prosecutors allege, the Russian MLAT clears itself and vilifies an "Investment Company" throughout, in particular, Bill Browder's Hermitage Capital.
Here's a story on the death of Karapetyan, whose name matches the one on the doc's signature. https://www.rferl.org/amp/russian-prosecutor-linked-trump-tower-lawyers-skripal-other-kremlin-intrigue-veselnitskaya-karapetyan-reported-dead-helicopter-crash/29526704.html …
It should be noted that figures connected to the Prevezon case, believed to be tied to Russian organized crime, have a habit of encountering misfortune.
After Magnitsky's death in a Moscow prison, his family's attorney survived a four-story fall from his Moscow apartment.
It was "no accident," that attorney told NBC News, which reported this gem.
Here is the Russian MLAT described in today's indictment: First, in Russian, then in English.
