MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Interior Ministry and the children’s ombudsman will work out joint proposals on amendments to laws concerning children’s security.
“Legislation should develop enough to make encroachments on the life, health and interests of children unacceptable and impossible. Today the situation, unfortunately, is such that perpetrators do not get a life sentence even for a double or triple murder of children,” children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said.
Murderers can appeal a verdict, get released from prison on parole and find themselves among children again, Astakhov said.
Also, he noted that keeping child pornography is not a crime in Russia. “If things go like this we will turn into one big global depositary of child pornography. This is why we will join forces with police and the Interior Ministry to work out proposals on how to improve legislation both in terms of stopping crimes and prosecuting perpetrators who encroach upon children’s rights and in terms of preventing crimes,” Astakhov said.
