Bill Browder and Edward Lucas have been allies for more than a decade, alerting the West to the danger of foreign corruption and its enablers.
Bill is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee human rights campaigner. Once the leading western investor in Russia, he has exposed the greed and brutality at the heart of Vladimir Putin’s regime. He now campaigns against illicit finance — dirty money — and against authoritarian regimes' abuse of the international legal system, notably their intimidation of critics through Interpol Red Notices.
Bill has pioneered Magnitsky sanctions, named after murdered Russian whistle-blower Sergei Magnitsky, which are now in place in the US, Canada, Britain and other jurisdictions.
His prize-winning book "Red Notice" will be on sale.
