Magnitsky Book Launch

Earlier this month, French journalist, Elana Servettaz, published a new book - Why Europe needs a Magnitsky law: should the EU follow the US? - in Parliament. I hosted the event, and contributed to this series of essays in memory of Sergei Magnitsky, along with a wide range of international supporters - from US Senator John McCain to Russian chess master Garry Kasparov.

I have led the campaign for a UK Magnistky law, securing a unanimous Parliamentary endorsement, which would ban those who commit torture or other heinous international crimes from coming to Britain or putting there money here. Elana's brilliant book makes the case for the Magnitsky law model in Europe. You can download the essays free online here.

With Douglas Murray, Bill Browder and Elana ...

... and making the case for a UK Magnitsky Act.
