The draft decree on amnesty adopted in the first reading


Deputies in the course of the plenary session adopted draft resolution of the Supreme Council "On Amnesty in Connection with the 75th Anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the PMR" in first reading. The document was sent by the republic’s prosecutor Anatoly Guretsky. The project was prepared for the first reading by a working group, which included a parliamentary committee on legislation, representatives of the Ministry of Justice, the Prosecutor's Office, the Investigative Committee and the Supreme Court.

According to the PMR Prosecutor Anatoly Guretsky, the amnesty can be applied to those who are convicted for the first time. The draft resolution deals with reducing the sentence. It is also proposed to apply the act of humanity to people of retirement age: women over 55 years old and men over 60 years old, and prisoners who have reached 70 years of age. The amnesty will be applied to those who will indemnify the victim and will not apply to persons who have committed serious or especially serious crimes. All incoming proposals will be discussed in detail in the relevant committee. Then the deputies will consider the draft resolution of the Supreme Council in the second reading.
