Spanish police arrest Bill Browder at Russian arrest warrant

The Russian Prosecutor General's office has many times requested Interpol to arrest Browder. "Going to the police station right now", Browder said on Twitter, adding that the police would not tell him which station he was being taken to.

"In the back of the Spanish police auto going to the station on the Russian arrest warrant", Browder wrote on Twitter Wednesday. "They won't tell me which station", Browder tweeted.

But there were multiple accounts about how the confusion arose, and why Mr Browder was detained. "Mr Browder is not wanted via Interpol channels".

A spokeswoman for Spain's National Police told The Spain Report, however, that the arrest warrant was no longer in force and that Mr. Browder had not been arrested as such but asked to accompany officers to a police station in Madrid to check his details.

The U.S. Magnitsky Act sanctioned Russian officials who were connected with his death.

It should be noted that earlier the Interpol repeatedly refused Russian Federation arrest Browder.

Spanish police said he was released shortly after because the warrant had expired, the BBC reported.

Browder, who is head of the global Magnitsky justice campaign, tweeted that he had been released "after Interpol General Secretary in Lyon advised them not to honour the new Russian Interpol Red Notice".

Interpol had previously refused to enforce a similar 2013 sentence for Browder, deeming it "predominantly political in nature".

However, in an email, Interpol said it has never issued a Red Notice for Browder.

Another Hamas official did not confirm the number, but said those participating were demonstrating peacefully. "Reported use of excessive force and live ammunition is inexcusable", he said .

He's on the country's blacklist for exposing a $230 million Kremlin tax fraud scam involving Hermitage Capital Management, the company he started in Moscow in the 1990s.

Born in Chicago but based in the U.K., Browder was at one point the largest portfolio investor in Russia, but his criticism of Putin saw him fall foul of Russian authorities.

Browder led one of the biggest investment funds in Russian Federation for 10 years before he left the country and was barred re-entry in 2006 on the grounds that he posed a threat to national security.

Browder said he was going to talk to Grinda "about the huge amount of money from the Magnitsky case that flowed to Spain".
