The package of legislations regulating the functions of the prosecutor's office received a number of amendments. Their discussion took place within the framework of the meeting of the responsible committee on legislation, law enforcement, defense, security, peacekeeping, protection of citizens' rights and freedoms. Representatives of the prosecutor's office, courts, and the Investigative Committee took part in the consideration of the legislations in the second reading mode.
Earlier, the amendments were discussed during the meetings of the working group, the members of which formed a unified approach to "polishing" the legislations - a reference to Russian legislation. Taking this into consideration, the meeting participants discussed an amendment aimed at securing the structure of investigative bodies in the law "On the Investigative Committee", in particular, keeping the Main Department for procedural control over the legality of the preliminary investigation. According to the Prosecutor of the Republic Anatoly Guretsky, the approval of the structure of the investigative bodies is the prerogative of the head of state, as well as in the Russian Federation. Representatives of the Investigative Committee, on the contrary, supported the amendment, citing the fact that it fully reflects the norms of the criminal procedure legislation. The head of the committee, Galina Antyufeeva, spoke in favor of adoption.
The parliamentarians have extended the second reading of the legislations, the consideration of the amendments will continue.
Another wave of discussion was initiated by a law-in-draft, aimed at improving the institution of parole. Deputies of the Committee in the second reading supported a number of amendments. According to them, when considering an application for a conditional early release, the court will take into account both the term of punishment served to the convicted person and the degree of public danger of the prisoner.
In the opinion of the Chairman of the Supreme Court, Vladimir Rymar, these grounds for satisfying the court with a petition for conditional early release are insufficient, all factors must be taken into account. Taking into account the point of view of the judicial body, the co-author of the legislative initiative, the Prosecutor of Pridnestrovie Anatoly Guretsky spoke in favor of preserving the concept of the law-in-draft.
According to the head of the committee and co-author of the law-in-draft Galina Antyufeeva, the content of convicts in places of deprivation of liberty costs the state more than 65 million rubles annually. At the same time, the main goal of the execution of punishment - the correction of the convicted person - is not fully realized. The conditional early release institute is called upon to induce convicts to positive behavior.
Parliamentarians will start forming the table of amendments taking into account the expressed opinions.
