MOSCOW, December 30. /ITAR-TASS/. An LDPR deputy in the Russian State Duma lower house of parliament, Roman Khudyakov, suggested lifting a moratorium on death penalty for terrorists, pedophiles and serial murderers in an appeal to the Russian president which he submitted for consideration of the lower house on Monday. The information has been published at the Russian State Duma official website.
Khudyakov told journalists that the idea behind his initiative was to re-introduce capital punishment for the gravest crimes under the Russian Penal Code, especially terrorism and complicity to terrorist acts.
“Criminals and bandits feel free in Russia while the Penal Code is not so strict,” the deputy went on to say. He believed that the criminal world had tightened its grip on Russia and that made tough measures urgent.
Khudyakov said that the number of grave crimes would decrease multifold if death penalty was re-introduced in Russia.
Earlier, on December 20, Khudyakov submitted a package of bills to the Russian State Duma that provided for the re-introduction of capital punishment for people guilty of terrorism, transport accidents with numerous casualties, compulsion to taking drugs if that led to the death of two or more people as well as crimes against the sexual immunity of people under age.
Khudyakov suggests making the aforesaid amendments to the Criminal and Penal Codes.
