MOSCOW, February 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s drug control authority suggests introducing administrative or even criminal responsibility for those renting their apartments first of all to migrants without legal notification of local authorities, head of Moscow’s branch of the Federal Service on control of drug turnover /FSKN/ Lieutenant-General of the police Vyacheslav Davydov said.
He explained that most of detained participants in drug criminal group are immigrants, and law enforcement authorities sometimes find it difficult to identify them and their residence address.
“We suggest raising legally the responsibility of companies and individuals for providing housing for foreign citizens,” he said.
Davydov explained that many Muscovites rent their flats and avoid official procedures to escape taxes. Thus, the drug control authority suggests a norm, where a flat rental notification is not forwarded to tax authorities.
“For example, a flat owner would have only to call us or to e-mail passport details of a guest, the purpose of arrival and the term of staying in Moscow.”
“However, if this norm is violated, we suggest introducing strict administrative or in some cases even criminal responsibility,” he concluded.
