MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - The State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament might review, on October 15, the 1st reading of the presidential bill proposing to commit relatives of terrorists to reimburse the damage they caused. On Wednesday, the house committee for security supported the presidential initiative.
"The proposed measures to combat terrorism are comprehensive; they were developed on the basis of analysis of law-enforcement practice and international experience," Committee chairwoman Irina Yarovaya (United Russia faction) said at a session of the Committee. "Taking into account the fact that terrorism is a global phenomenon, the instruments to combat it should be commensurate and comprehensive."
For his part, first deputy chairman of the Committee Khozh Magomed Vakhayev (United Russia) noted that the bill was "important and necessary, because we've been fighting terrorist groups for decades, especially in the North Caucasus."
"I don't understand why we did not submit this legislation ten, 15 or 20 years ago," he said. "I believe residents, especially in the North Caucasus, will welcome the bill."
