MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. Relatives and others helping commission of terrorist crime face tougher punishment if Russian lawmakers pass a bill submitted to Moscow by opposite numbers in the north Caucasus republic of Chechnya.

Proposals extend the list of accomplices subject to criminal responsibility for aiding and abetting offences to include parents or full-age close relatives, says an explanatory note to the bill.

State Duma lower house deputies are being asked to support a tougher Russian Criminal Code raising jail terms from a current 15 years to a proposed 25 years and property confiscation.
