MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) — A draft law on military police will be coordinated till the yearend, Russian Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said.
“The draft law [on military police] is prepared and sent to federal bodies of power,” Serdyukov told journalists on Thursday.
According to the Russian minister, all remarks and recommendations have been taken into account. “The document will be coordinated till the yearend,” he said, adding that the ministry did not see any difficulties in this aspect.
In the spring 2010 the Defence Ministry said it intended to create a new institution – the institute of military police. The purpose of the new structure is to divide functions of military and civilian police. Military policemen will deal with searching for disappearing servicemen, dodgers and revealing cases of military hazing.
