MOSCOW, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Just Russia leader Sergei Mironov suggested likening corruption-related offences to high treason.

“Corruption must be punished accordingly by up to 25 years in prison to life imprisonment,” he said on Monday, November 12.

Mironov also believes it necessary to seize ill gotten property owned not only by corruption officials but also by their relatives.

He stressed the need to ratify Article 20 of the U.N. Convention that regulates the fight against corruption.

Mironov said he was optimistic about high-profile investigations. “I hope that this is a start of a serious fight against corruption. We need the Singaporean model according to which everyone is equal before law,” he added.
