A Russian national whose 5-year-old son is a U.S. citizen says she has been wrongly imprisoned in Kuwait since May 2018, but she has a chance at release on Easter Sunday, her U.S.-based advocates told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Marsha Lazareva, former chief executive of private equity group KGL Investment (KGLI), was sentenced to 10 years of hard labor for misappropriating funds in a Kuwaiti court May 6. She has an appeal hearing in the Middle Eastern country on Easter Sunday, during which she’ll be supported by heavyweights including ex-GOP California Rep. Ed Royce and former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton.
