      Gabrielius Landbergis, MP (Lithuania) Bill Browder (Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign), Vladimir Kara-Murza(Open Russia) and Eerik-Niiles Kross, MP (Estonia) testified on June 6 in Copenhagen at Parliamentary hearings about the Magnitsky Act Initiative.

      The hearings, called by the Foreign Affairs Committee and moderated by Michael Aastruo Jensen (Liberal Party), examined the experience of other countries and the possibility of introducing similar legislation in Denmark. 

      Adopted by the USA, Canada and the Baltic States, the Magnitsky Act targets human rights violators and prevents corrupt officials from stashing their wealth in foreign countries. Currently 49 members of Putin's inner circle are on a sanctions list.
