MOSCOW, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The amnesty to mark the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution will influence very positively the investment climate in Russia, but it is still early to say about concrete names of business people, who may come under the effect of the amnesty, Russian Presidential Commissioner of Business Rights Boris Titov told reporters on Thursday.
“This amnesty will naturally have a positive, favorable influence,” he noted. “Certainly, this act will not just have positive influence, I believe that it will be one of decisive factors to change the investment climate in our country,” he added.
He said with hope that a larger number of business people, including business people, who did not indemnify the damage, will be released from prison under the amnesty to mark the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution. “We will see which text of the amnesty the State Duma lower house of parliament will approve. We pin high hopes that it will not have such a criterion as the duty to indemnify the damage,” Titov said, recalling that this requirement is one of obstacles on the way of the economic amnesty.
Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Presidential Council of Human Rights in September to prepare proposals on the amnesty to mark the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution.
On Wednesday, the president noted that he fully agrees with the proposal of the council on this amnesty. “The amnesty can spread only on those people, who did not commit grave crimes and the crimes related with violent actions against representatives of the state authorities, primarily law enforcers,” Putin stated.At a meeting with Presidential Human Rights Commissioner Vladimir Lukin and Chairman of the Council of Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov the president instructed “to finalize the document (the amnesty act) jointly with the deputies of the State Duma. “The decision should be well-balanced, but certainly aimed at humanization of the law enforcement practice,” Putin said.
“I will expect a final document, which you had drafted jointly with the parliament,” he said.
In the words of Fedotov, the amnesty to mark the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution may spread on up to 100,000 people.
Meanwhile, the Kremlin believes that “it is still premature, hasty and wrong” to name those who may come under the effect of the amnesty. “The bill on amnesty will be submitted by the president, it will be finalized within next few days, particularly on the results of the today’s meeting (between Putin, the chairman of the Council of Human Rights and the presidential human rights commissioner),” Russian president’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
“The common consent is obvious with the idea that the amnesty can spread on those who did not commit violent crimes,” he said. Meanwhile, “it is absolutely premature to say that the amnesty will spread on some concrete names, some concrete people,” Peskov noted.
