Bill targeting human rights abusers passes Senate
By Jonathan Ablett | October 25, 2017
A Canadian bill targeting foreign nationals who have committed human rights violations has just passed final reading in the Senate.
Bill S-226, which has now passed both the Senate and House of Commons, was inspired by the case of Sergei Magnitsky, an anti-corruption lawyer who died in 2009 after a year in a Russian jail.
The bill, when it receives Royal Assent, would give the cabinet the power to forbid the Canadian business dealings or dealings with Canadians abroad, of foreign nationals who are “responsible for, or complicit in, extrajudicial killings, torture or other gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.”
