NEW YORK, March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is hosting a press availability at 3:30 pm EST tomorrow, March 9, 2021. HRF President Thor Halvorssen will be joined by Bryan Fogel, director of THE DISSIDENT, Mike Abramowitz, the president of Freedom House, and Bill Browder, the human rights activist who lead the effort to pass the Magnitsky Act and the Global Magnitsky Act.
These leaders in human rights advocacy combine their formidable voices to call out the Biden Administration’s refusal to sanction Mohammed bin Salman under the Global Magnitsky Act, as well as the absence of previously verified facts in the declassified report released in last month’s intelligence report on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, provided by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. This report confirms the facts proving Saudi Arabia’s guilt as first uncovered in HRF’s film, THE DISSIDENT, first screened over a year ago at the Sundance Film Festival.
