MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) - The State Duma lower house of Russian parliament will Friday debate several bills, which toughen the procedure of levying fines from migrants and the requirements to applicants for Russian citizenship, and will ratify the agreement on labour migrants with Vietnam.
To make the execution of the court rulings more efficient the deputies propose to decide that a fine imposed on a foreign citizen or a stateless citizen simultaneously with the deportation from Russia should be paid no later than on the next day since the court verdict of levying a fine takes effect. Now a fine should be paid no longer than 30 days after the court verdict takes effect.
The explanatory note to the bill, which is being debated in the first reading, holds that more than 17,000 court verdicts for the deportation of foreigners from Russia were passed in the Federal Bailiff Service in 2012. Each third verdict concerning a fine imposed on a foreigner remains unfulfilled, because the offender was already deported from Russia by the moment the court verdict had been submitted for fulfilment.
One more important initiative in the first reading bans former heads of the organizations found extremist and disbanded by the court verdict to create public or religious movements.
The bill expanding the list of reasons for turning down an application from a foreigner for Russian citizenship is put up for second main reading. The document offers to impose a ban for granting Russian citizenship and restoring citizenship to people, who were exposed to administrative expulsion from Russia, were deported or handed over to a foreign country under the international readmission agreements that Russia had concluded.
