Bastrykin proposed to confiscate an additional type of punishment
The Chairman of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, proposed to make the confiscation of property as an additional type of punishment in case of a crime of a corruption nature.
According to him, it is necessary to strengthen the preventive value of criminal law measures for reparation.
As the head of the Investigation Committee told the newspaper “Izvestia”, the department also “still insists on introducing the institution of the criminal liability of legal entities.”
“After all, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the money and financial instruments acquired by corruption are transferred abroad through legal entities,” he said.
In April, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia published a memo for entrepreneurs explaining their rights and obligations in the fight against corruption.
