Between 1996 and 2005, American investor Bill Browder ran the largest foreign investment firm in Russia, until he was declared ‘a threat to Russian national security’ and got kicked out of the country. Browder has spent the last 14 years trying to understand the dark money flowing out of Russia.

In Freezing Order – translated into Dutch as Achtervolgd door de staatsmaffia for publisher Atlas Contact – Browder tells the story of his quest to establish a global regime for imposing sanctions on Russians involved in corruption and criminality. This global regime came with the realization of the Magnitsky Act, named after Browder’s lawyer Sergei Magnitsky who was arrested, tortured, and died in Russian police custody.

Moderator: Michel Krielaars, former russia correspondent voor NRC.
