ODF & FIDU hosted a second seminar at the Italian Parliament on the Global Magnitsky Act

On July 24, in Rome, the Open Dialogue Foundation (ODF) and the Italian Federation for Human Rights (FIDU) organised an event under the title “Human Rights protection and sanctions: towards a Global Magnitsky Act”. The event took place at the conference room of the Chamber of Deputies of the Italian Parliament and was hosted by Deputy Lia Quartapelle (Democratic Party). The event featured a list of accomplished experts, NGO representatives and victims of human rights abuses fighting impunity in non-democratic countries and followed the example of a similar conference organised in March 2019 upon the initiative of Italian Senator Roberto Rampi, FIDU, ODF, the Nonviolent Radical Party, Transnational and Transparty and the EU-Russian Expert Group on Combating Transborder Corruption.
