"They won't tell me which station", he wrote in a follow-up.

This resulted in the 2012 passage of the Magnitsky Act, which allows the United States government to blacklist Russian officials "thought to be responsible" for Magnitsky's death.

After an hour in custody he was released because the warrant was no longer valid, Spanish police said.

Spain's interpretation and execution of warrants under Interpol's red notice system has been a source of diplomatic tension between Madrid and the European Union for some time.

Mr Browder then posted a picture of a document linked to his arrest, detailing his legal rights and saying that he had been detained on allegations of fraud.

He was put on trial in absentia in 2013 for tax evasion - in the same trial where the deceased Magnitsky faced charges, labelled "absurd" by observers. Red Notice alerts are sent to Interpol member countries to locate and arrest specific people based on a national warrant.

Interpol blocked Russia's attempts to issue an arrest warrant to Browder for the fifth time in October previous year by informing him of its decision to dismiss Russia's request to put him on the Interpol wanted list.

This article has been updated to include Interpol's denial that it issued a warrant for Browder's arrest, and Browder's subsequent tweet about his release.

Browder said on his Twitter account that Interpol had advised Spanish police not to honor a Russian Interpol red notice - a request to locate and provisionally arrest someone pending extradition.

Interpol denied the claim and said, "Mr Browder is not wanted via Interpol channels".

Chicago-born Browder is the founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, an global investment fund.

"Moscow should concentrate on bringing those responsible for the murder of #Magnitsky to justice", Johnson added. "And so he came up with the most heartless, vindictive thing he could do, which was Americans were adopting disabled Russian orphans, and he said, 'No, you can't adopt them anymore, '" Browder explained.

He was in Madrid to give evidence to anti-Russian mafia prosecutor Jose Grinda "about a huge amount of money" that he says has flowed in to Spain regarding the case of former lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
