The Sentry’s Congressional Testimony on Global Magnitsky

On Wednesday March 24, Brad Brooks-Rubin, General Counsel at The Sentry, joined a panel of witnesses asked to testify in front of the House Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission on the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act. The hearing offered a chance to examine the implementation of the sanctions authority, analyze its efficacy in achieving the Act’s objectives, and determine if the original statute requires any adjustments as Congress┬ábegins its reauthorization process.
