MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS World Service/. A month after the amnesty was declared to mark the 20th anniversary of Russian Constitution, the Federal Penitentiary Service had released around 2,000 people, while within the economic amnesty campaign, which was declared in July 2013, almost four times fewer of convicts were released from penitentiaries for six months of economic amnesty act in effect, Kommersant daily reported.
“The compulsory condition to fall under the effect of economic amnesty was the indemnification of damage. There is no such condition in a new general amnesty and this explains why a quite large number of people were released from custody for such a short period of time,” Communist deputy of State Duma lower house of parliament Oleg Denisenko, who is also a public aide to business rights ombudsman Boris Titov, told the daily. The number of people released under economic amnesty act “will grow, but slightly,” the deputy noted.
