MOSCOW, September 4 (Itar-Tass) - Chairman of the Russian Presidential Council of Civil Society and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov has asked President Vladimir Putin to declare an amnesty for prisoners to mark the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution.
“This is not only for pregnant women and women with children, but also for those who committed non-violent crimes in the past to be relieved from criminal responsibility,” Fedotov said, adding that amnesty would draw a line under an epoch of revolutions, wars and wild capitalism.
Reviewing repeat convictions among those released on amnesty, Fedotov said their number was below five percent. “Amnesty can be made even more effective with measures to resocialize the amnestees,” Fedotov said, adding that this campaign would remove previous convictions from official records.
