By Emily Jones
A very influential Christian businesswoman in the Middle East is fighting for her freedom from a prison cell in Kuwait.
Marsha Lazareva, a Russian national whose five-year-old son is an American citizen, says she was wrongly convicted in 2018 for allegedly misusing public funds in Kuwait while serving as the chief executive and vice-chairman of the private equity group KGL Investment (KGLI). She was sentenced to 10 years of hard labor.
