This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise
Bill Browder is founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, Head of the Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign and author of Red Notice: How I became Putin’s No 1 enemy.
Browder was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005, when he was declared “a threat to national security” for exposing corruption in Russian state-owned companies. Browder’s lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, uncovered a massive fraud, testified against state officials and was subsequently arrested, imprisoned without trial and systematically tortured until he died in prison a year later. Browder has sought justice outside of Russia and started a global campaign to impose targeted visa bans and asset freezes on human rights abusers and corrupt officials. He is working to have similar legislation passed across the European Union and countries worldwide.
Bill will be in conversation with James Harding, Tortoise co-founder for this very special ThinkIn.
This ThinkIn is brought to you by the team at Kite Festival. The inaugural festival of ideas and music will now take place June 11-13th 2021. Bill Browder was due to appear in the Ideas programme at Kite Festival this June.
