UNITED STATES – Interfaith leaders slam US law firm lobbying for Chinese gov’t, other repressive regimes

The Christian Post | May 2, 2019

An interfaith group of religious leaders and human rights activists asked one of America’s top international law firms Wednesday to stop representing foreign governments known for their repeated human rights abuses.

In a joint letter sent to the chairman of Squire Patton Boggs, 44 leaders and activists from various faiths and political backgrounds voiced their concerns about the Cleveland, Ohio-headquartered organization’s representation of foreign governments that are “among the world’s most aggressive persecutors of people of faith.”  

“It is deeply troubling to us that your prestigious firm and the many good people it employs are currently associated with and providing legal counsel, representation and other services to such nations,” the letter reads.
