Bill Browder was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005 when he was declared “a threat to national security” for exposing corruption in Russian state-owned companies. In 2009 Browder’s lawyer and anti-corruption whistle blower, Sergei Magnitsky, was killed in a Moscow pretrial detention centre. Ever since, Browder campaigned for targeted sanctions on human rights abusers and corrupt officials. The US passed Magnitsky Act in 2012, followed by the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act in 2016.
