LISTVYANKA VILLAGE /Irkutsk region/, June 18 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called for tougher responsibility for concealing information about environmental crimes.
"Concealing information /about such crimes/ is a graver offense," Medvedev said at a meeting on Tuesday with the expert council under the government over increasing the effectiveness of environmental protection. "The responsibility for concealing this information should be tougher," he said.
According to the premier, he does not mean new amendments to the Criminal Code. "I believe it is the department of law-enforcement practice," he said.
