The Estonian government with its Thursday decision has imposed an entry ban on the 49 individuals listed on the Magnitsky List, the names of which have been published.

The government approved a proposal by Minister of Foreign Affairs Sven Mikser (SDE) to impose an entry ban on individuals connected to gross human rights violations, including the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in 2009, under the International Sanctions Act.

Per the proposal, the entry ban will be imposed on 49 individuals included on the Magnitsky List.

"The government's unity and decisiveness regarding this matter demonstrate our desire to draw attention to increasingly frequent violations of international law in Russia," Mikser said. "We cannot leave gross violations of human rights unanswered."

According to the foreign minister, with the implementation of such measures, Estonia is supporting the safeguarding of the rule of law.

"We take human rights very seriously, and we want to convey this message to our allies as well," Mikser said. "We must all respond to incidents undermining the rule-based world order, thus contributing to our own security as well."

International organizations including the Council of Europe, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the European Parliament have called for sanctions to be imposed on individuals connected to the Magnitsky case and similar cases.

The U.S., Canada, the U.K., Latvia and Lithuania have already imposed national measures, including entry bans, in connection with violators of human rights.
