MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A bill banning offenders, who committed the crimes against life and freedom, sexual inviolability of children, public security and moral values, the foundations of the constitutional system and state security to create and participate in the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and public associations working with underage children, was submitted in the State Duma lower house of parliament on Friday.
Deputies of Lipetsk regional council of deputies and members of the Federation Council upper house of parliament initiated the amendments in the bill.
According to explanatory notes, founders, members and participants of the NGOs, which work with underage children, and employees of such organisations get regularly directly in touch with children. They “bear higher responsibility for their safety, because only people, who do not pose a threat to their life, health and moral values can be engaged in the learning, upbringing, development, including the children and youth sports, culture and arts for underage children.”
In this regard, the authors of the bill find it needed to spread the already effective ban on offenders who were subject to criminal prosecution for some types of crimes to act as founders and work as members and participants of these NGOs for children.
The crimes against peace and security of the humankind are also expected to be named among the crimes, convictions for which entail this ban.
