Here is a copy of the letter from the 45 Lords and MP’s to U.K. Foreign Secretary Raab calling for the U.K. Magnitsky Act to include kleptocrats in addition to human rights abusers. Thanks Lord Alton for leading on this.
John Penrose MP said “Britain can do without kleptocrats and organised criminals whose dirty money comes from abusing human rights while they loot foreign countries. We need to hit them where it hurts – in the wallet – so they can’t do business or live off their ill-gotten gains”
John a Penrose MP is the British Prime Minister’s anti corruption champion. It means a lot coming from him.
