Sergei Magnitsky bill addresses Russia corruption head-on - The Washington Post
The House Foreign Affairs Committee is scheduled today to take up the most consequential piece of legislation in years related to Russia: the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012. With strong bipartisan support, led by Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) and Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.), the Magnitsky bill is the most serious U.S. effort to address human rights and the rule of law in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Russian whistleblowers, Russian public officials, Russian business professionals, and employees of multinational corporations with evidence of Russian government corruption are eligible for large whistleblower financial rewards. Russian government corruption that can be the basis for these awards include illegal payments for business; bribes for construction contracts; illegal incentives for oil, gas and mineral leases; illegal kickbacks for regulatory approval; and other violations of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Russian whistleblowers and multinational corporation whistleblowers are needed to step up to report illegal corrupt practices and can receive large financial rewards for being the first to properly expose significant Russian government corruption.
