The Rome-based ASRIE Analytica policy bureau has published a report on the Center for Business Transparency and Countering Corporate Raids in Russia and its upcoming meetings with Members of the European Parliament and other EU and U.S. political stakeholders.
In the report, ASRIE Analytica outlines the center’s planned and prospective activities, which will include meetings with Members of the European Parliament in Brussels and the German Parliament (Bundestag) in Berlin, followed by similar meetings with U.S. Congressmen in Washington, D.C.
A number of meetings have already been scheduled.
The first meeting in the European Parliament will be held with MEP Attila Ara-Kovács, a human-rights champion from Hungary.
Ara-Kovács is a respected politician, philosopher and journalist. He is also a member of the EU Parliament’s Delegation to the EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee and its Subcommittee on Security and Defense. He is an alternate member of the EU Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The center’s directors, Ilgar Hajiyev and Igor Bitkov, will speak with Ara-Kovács by teleconference about reiderstvo in Russia and their individual cases. A representative of Berlin-based Alcon Development GmbH, whose business was impacted by the raid on Hajyev’s Russia operation, will take part in the discussion at Ara-Kovács’ office in Brussels.
