EANC joined a coalition of 23 groups concerned with human rights in signing an open letter to Secretary of State Tillerson and Secretary of the Treasury Mnuchin stressing the importance of implementation and enforcement of the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act.

Global Magnitsky was signed into law in December 2016. It authorizes the President to imposed financial sanctions and visa restrictions on foreign citizens who engage in certain human rights violations and acts of corruption. The Departments of State and Treasury hold primary responsibility

for enforcing the sanctions.

The letter was drafted and coordinated by Human Rights First (HRF), a non-profit, nonpartisan international human rights organization based in New York, Washington D.C., Houston, and Los Angeles. They also vetted and submitted in conjunction with the letter 15 case files for review under the act. The HRF press release is available on their website at humanrightsfirst.org under blogs and press releases for September 13th (titled NGOs Identify Human Rights Abusers…). The full letter and  case summaries are also linked from the press release.

EANC advocated for Global Magnitsky and fully supports its provisions and enforcement. The Estonian parliament unanimously passed a similar law, also in December 2016. Several European countries, Canada, the U.K. and the European Parliament have also passed similar legislation.
