Event description
Henry Jackson Society is pleased to invite you for a discussion about the importance of “Magnitsky Laws” in sanctioning human rights abusers

About this Event

A decade ago this week, Sergey Magnitsky died in a Russian prison having uncovered a US$230 million tax fraud committed against his employer, Bill Browder, by Russia’s authorities. In the years since, Browder has fought a campaign for justice, leading to so-called “Magnitsky Laws” being passed in the US, Canada, the Baltic States, and the UK.

 

Such “Magnitsky Laws” do not solely enable sanctions against Russians suspected of human rights violations in relation to Magnitsky’s death. They also enable sanctions against others suspected of human rights violations per se. Using its legislation, for example, the US has sanctioned an African warlord, a Balkan arms dealer, and a Pakistani organ trader.
