MOSCOW, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma committee for civil, criminal, arbitration and procedural legislation recommended Monday the lower house of parliament to approve an amnesty bill, which Russian President Vladimir Putin had introduced to mark the 20th anniversary of Russian Constitution.At the same time the committee proposed to consider the bill in two readings. The first reading will be held on Tuesday, December 17, and the second final reading on December 18. Several amendments have already been offered to introduce in the presidential amnesty bill, particularly those from the parliamentary factions of A Just Russia and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR).
The committee advised to turn down other nine amnesty variants that the State Duma is debating. The debate over one more variant of the amnesty act is delayed to the spring of the next year at the request of its author.
