MOSCOW, 20 Jan. The new Code of the Russian Federation about administrative offences can be made more understandable for ordinary Russians, this decision reached by the participants of the working group on the development of a draft document in the state Duma.
The new draft of the code of administrative offences was submitted for consideration the state Duma in mid-December 2015. Then the head of the constitutional Committee of the Duma Vladimir Pligin said that before making the text of the draft law was discussed with experts. In the period from 20 January to 13 February will be held a number of working meetings to discuss chapters of the document with the participation of representatives of the government, Supreme court, General Prosecutor’s office of the Russian Federation, Central Bank of the Russian Federation and other agencies. The current edition of the code was implemented on 1 July 2002.
Speaking at a meeting of the working group, the Deputy of the state Duma from the Communist party, former Deputy Prosecutor of Moscow Yuri sinelshikov said that the faction supported the adoption of a new wording of the administrative code and intends to maintain the document in the first reading.
“There is a fundamental point — the Code is written in unclear language. These suffer from many of the articles. It is written for scientists, for lawyers, but not for humans, not for the citizen. The citizen who defends himself by itself, nothing will be able to understand,” he said.
According to sinelshikov, he was not satisfied with the provisions of the draft Code explaining the procedure of calculation of fines. “In three articles about how to calculate fines, it is. I’ve counted a total of 14 pages of text. It’s crazy you can go is to understand how these penalties are calculated… I am very sat long, absorbed in each specific situation. Why is it necessary? To confuse people is that”, he said.
In turn, Vladimir Pligin agreed with the comment, explaining that it will be taken into account in the text of the document. “As for language, agree with the observation. We will invite our distinguished linguists, some of whom, unfortunately, because of age, possessing a unique experience, left the State Duma on pension,” he said Sinelshikov.
