MOSCOW, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. A bill that broadens FSB powers for purposes of preventing terrorism and enforces heavier punishment for terrorist activities has been submitted to the State Duma on Wednesday.
The bill was drafted by deputies of all the four factions of the State Duma. Chairwoman of the Duma Committee on Security Irina Yarovaya supervised the work on the bill.
Under a bill in effect now FSB workers are authorized to check documents of citizens, who are suspected of crimes, to confirm their identity. The amended bill broadens the powers of FSB agents and authorizes them to search citizens, examine their belongings, search their transport vehicles and cargoes inside if there are sufficient reasons to suspect such citizens of crimes or any other offences.
The bill also suggests treating crimes committed for purposes of propaganda, support or justification of terrorism as committed under aggravating circumstances.
The bill drops the statue of limitations for crimes committed for terrorist purposes and crimes posing threat to peace and security of mankind.
The bill also administers a prison term from 15 to 20 years for the organization of terrorist crimes and organization of financial support to terrorism.
The suggested bill tightens punishment for being trained for acts of terrorism, organizing a terrorist community and participating in it, organizing an illegal armed formation or taking part in its activities.
