Deputies have come up with a way to protect Russians from police brutality
Deputies of the New People party have come up with a way to protect Russian citizens from unlawful actions of police officers. To do this, they propose to oblige law enforcement officers to record on video cases of disobedience to officials, RBC reported with reference to the bill.
Parliamentarians propose not to bring citizens to administrative responsibility if proof of their disobedience is not provided.
The document for recall was submitted to the government by the leader of “New People” Alexei Nechaev and Deputy Speaker of the Duma Vladislav Davankov.
As parliamentarians noted, the Russian Guard does not regulate the storage and use of video evidence. Even for their falsification or deliberate destruction there is no liability. According to the authors of the bill, if it is adopted, there will be less arbitrariness on the part of the police.
“Individual unscrupulous law enforcement officers may destroy recordings from video recorders that prove the absence of violence by a citizen against an official. In practice, situations often occur when the recording from the video recorder of a law enforcement officer “disappears” if the recording proves the guilt of the official before a civilian,” says the explanatory note to the document.
