Zyuganov offers to return the death penalty for terrorism and major theft

MOSCOW, October 20. In Russian judicial practice must return the rule on the imposition of the death penalty, including terrorism and theft on a large scale. This was stated by the leader of the CPRF Gennady Zyuganov.

“Society is not ready for the abolition of the death penalty, said Zyuganov in the air of TV channel “Russia 24″. – For theft in especially large size, causing damage to all citizens of the country, was before capital punishment. We rushed to cancel it”.

As an example of crimes for which can be applied to capital punishment, the leader of the Communist party led terrorism and major theft. In particular, theft during the construction of the Vostochny space centre, which, in his opinion, need to “loosen the ears along with the head”.

The moratorium on the death penalty operates in Russia since 1996, after the country’s accession to the Council of Europe. 16 April 1997, Russia signed Protocol No. 6 to the Convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms, concerning the abolition of the death penalty. The last time this sentence was enforced on 2 September 1996.
