London Mayor Decries Posthumous Trial of Russian Whistleblower

Date: 03-13-2013 | Category: Articles, Europe, Geopolitics, Russia and Eurasia

London mayor Boris Johnson published an op-ed Monday in which he decried the posthumous trial of whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky. Johnson called Magnitsky “a martyr trampled by a corrupt system” and called on the United Kingdom and the European Union to pass a Magnitsky Act—which levies financial sanctions and visa restrictions on the Russian officials involved in Magnitsky’s death—of its own. International sanctions against Magnitsky’s persecutors would send an unequivocal signal to Moscow: cease and desist gross human rights violations. By Ariel Cohen March 13, 2013
