NOVO-OGARYOVO, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s former human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin has come out with an offer to President Vladimir Putin to have an amnesty this year on a larger scale.
“We would like to see another amnesty this year. The fact is that we notice that last year’s amnesty was welcomed on the whole by the society, and at the same time we - some opponents and the society - have stated that its scale was less than in previous amnestied,” Lukin said at a meeting with the Russian president.
“We do have problems of inmates, and I offer more attention to disabled inmates,” the former ombudsman also said.
Lukin, replaced as human rights ombudsman by Ella Pamfilova in March 2014, presented to the president a report on human rights activity for 2013, when he was in office.
