This is the April 27, 2018 hearing on "The Long Arm of Injustice: Did a U.N. Commission Founded to Fight Corruption Help the Kremlin Destroy a Russian Family?" held before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Christopher Smith: "[The] facts of the case strongly indicate--and we will hear testimony on this today--that the United Nations International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala, or CICIG, became deeply involved in the Kremlin's persecution of the Bitkov family--indeed, that CICIG acted as the Kremlin's operational agent in brutalizing and tormenting the Bitkov family. Congress has a special responsibility in this matter because the United States is one of the largest contributors to CICIG, to their budget. There has been little congressional oversight of CICIG. It is clearly time for that to change." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bill Browder, Victoria Sandoval, and Rolando Alvarado.
