 Spanish police release Putin critic Browder previously detained under Russian warrant

The anti-corruption campaigner and well-known critic of President Vladimir Putin of Russia, Bill Browder was arrested in Madrid, Spain, under Russian warrant. He later tweeted that the police cut him loose.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Browder’s tweets, he was freed from custody after the Lyon-based Interpol general secretary had advised the police not to honour the Russian arrest warrant.

Browder led a campaign to expose corruption and punish Russian officials he blamed for the death of his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky back in 2009.
