The Committee on Legislation, Law Enforcement, Defense, Security, Peacekeeping, and the Protection of Citizens' Rights and Freedoms recommended the adoption in two readings of amendments to the Criminal Code providing for the establishment of responsibility for the incitement of juveniles to suicide. The parliamentarians noted the urgent need to update the criminal legislation in connection with the aggravation of the situation around social networks, where the so-called "death groups" continue to operate, the victims of which over the past few years were teenagers from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, and our republic.
Deputies of the committee and representatives of the executive authorities participating in the discussion of the issue wholeheartedly supported the legislative initiative, emphasizing its timeliness. To date, the Internet continues to be an uncontrolled area of law. According to legislators, the tragic events are forced to beat the alarm - it's time to change the alarming situation.
As part of the second reading, members of the committee continued their consideration of the law-in-draft "On the Procedure for Using the State Flag of the Russian Federation on the Territory of Pridnestrovian Republic" according to which the Russian state symbol is proposed to be applied on a par with the Pridnestrovian one. According to the law-in-draft, the Russian flag will be placed on buildings and premises of state authorities and local self-government bodies, as well as used for official events: a red-green banner on the left, Russian tricolor on the right.
Parliamentarians noted that when they learned of the adoption of the law-in-draft in the first reading, people widely supported it.
In the course of the meeting, deputies of the legislative committee supported and recommended for approval by the Supreme Council the candidacy of Vyacheslav Kosinsky for the post of the Ombudsman for Human Rights. Presenting the candidate Galina Antyufeeva noted his high professionalism, adherence to principles, extensive experience in the judicial authorities and law enforcement system.
