MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will draft a bill to form military police this year, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Defence and Security Committee Alexander Chekalin told a briefing with military, air force and naval attaches of foreign countries.
“2012 is the year to draft a bill to form military police,” he said. “This is to keep the public order at the places, where servicemen are staying, ensure security of the traffic on the way of military convoys,” he noted.
The bill will dwell on such issue as the operation of guardhouses. “The guardhouses exist in all military units in foreign countries,” he noted. “This is also an initial inquiry in the facts, which have the traces of an offence,” Chekalin noted, concluding, “Certainly, such decisions to form military police will deal a crushing blow on the notorious hazing.”
The Russian Defence Ministry is considering the bill on military police. The bill will be elaborated with necessary harmonization of the Criminal, Criminal Procedure and Administrative Offence Codes.
