The Federation Council will discuss projects on punishment for torture in colonies

A working group of the Federation Council in early November will discuss three bills on punishment for torture in colonies, RIA Novosti reports, citing the head of the group, Senator Lyudmila Narusova.

The projects are presented by the Upper House of Parliament, Ombudsman Tatiana Moskalkova and the Public Chamber.

Narusova noted that the resonance around the news about torture in the Saratov colonies only confirmed the need for the adoption of the law.

“What we see is terrifying footage. Of course, it is necessary to understand that law enforcement officers should be more actively involved in this, – said in turn the chairman of the Constitutional Committee of the Federation Council Andrei Klishas. “The public attention that has been drawn to this will contribute to this.”

The senator added that the working group should work out a conceptually and terminologically unified law.

Earlier it was reported that the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation would check information about the torture of a prisoner in Saratov. According to some reports, unlawful acts were committed against the man. Several corrections officers were fired.
