LONDON, September 3 - RAPSI. Russian Ambassador to London, Alexander Yakovenko, will demand an explanation from the Foreign Office in London regarding entry visa restrictions associated with the "Magnitsky list," the Russian Embassy in the UK reported on Sunday.

"Ambassador Yakovenko will demand a formal response regarding a story in the Sunday Times on September 2 on visa restrictions related to the so-called "Magnitsky list", said the embassy.

The Sunday Times reported that the British Home Secretary had sent a list of 60 Russians suspected of involvement in the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to the UK Embassy in Moscow and that they could be banned from entering the country.

Magnitsky, 37, who was accused of corporate tax evasion while employed with the investment fund, died in an investigative isolation ward in November 2009. According to the Prosecutor General's Office, his death was caused by cardiovascular complications.

His death resulted in a massive public outcry.

The Sunday Times says it learned about the list after seeing a letter sent from Immigration Minister Damian Green to a Conservative party MP. The list is reported to include judges, intelligence officers and prosecutors.
