Russian tied to Trump Tower meet indicted in separate US case

The Russian lawyer whose participation in a June 2016 meeting with top officials of President Donald Trump’s election campaign has given rise to allegations of collusion has been indicted in a separate money laundering case, US prosecutors said Tuesday. Natalya Veselnitskaya was charged with fabricating evidence in a 2013 case the US filed against a Russian company, Prevezon Holdings, which was allegedly involved in a $230 million tax fraud scheme in Moscow. The money was purportedly derived from a fraudulent tax refund scheme exposed by crusading lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who was arrested by Russian authorities and died in prison in 2009 when he was allegedly denied adequate care for severe health conditions.
