UK’S “MAGNITSKY” SANCTIONS MAY BE SHELVED FOR 2 YEARS

The Sunday Telegraph on 16th September reported that a new set of sanctions against corrupt Russian officials is to be shelved for up to 2 years.  A so-called “Magnitsky amendment”, announced by the Prime Minister as an “immediate action” following the chemical attack in Salisbury, will not be introduced until after the UK has left the EU.  The Magnitsky amendment is intended to target human rights abusers from Russia and across the world.
