Romney Statement on Administration’s Lack of Compliance with Global Magnitsky Act

WASHINGTON—Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued the following statement regarding the Administration’s failure to comply with requirements of the Global Magnitsky Act:

“The question that Congress wants answered is whether any senior Saudi officials, including members of the Saudi royal family, were responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. By law, the President is required to report to Congress on these findings and the imposition of sanctions. I am concerned that the Administration has yet to comply with the law, nor has it sufficiently explained why. As has been requested by members of both parties, I urge the Administration to rectify this urgent situation and brief Congress on its progress as soon as possible.”
