UN TESTIMONY

Bill Browder

Bill Browder

William Browder is the founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005, when he was denied entry to the country as a consequence of his campaigning against corporate corruption. In 2009, Browder’s lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died in a Russian prison after uncovering a $230 million fraud by Russian government officials. Ever since, Browder has been leading a global campaign to expose the corruption and human rights abuses endemic in Russia, and was instrumental in making the U.S. enact the 2012 Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act, which imposes visa bans and asset freezes on officials involved in Magnitsky’s death, as well as other gross violators of human rights in Russia.
