Criminal proceedings against minor terminated

02 February 2017

Innocence of a minor resident of Amur Region accused of a crime has been proved with assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.

Citizen L. appealed to the High Commissioner with a petition about violation of her minor son’s rights. According to her, in April 2015, a criminal case had been launched against her son under Article 30, Part 3 (an attempted crime) and Article 291, Part 1 (giving a bribe) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

Having considered the case’s materials, the High Commissioner appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office of Amur Region.

The Deputy Prosecutor replied that an additional investigation had been conducted. Following the investigation’s results the criminal proceedings were terminated due to absence of corpus delicti in the case of the petitioner’s son.

The Supervising Prosecutor recognized the resolution on termination of the criminal case as lawful and well-grounded.

Thus, High Commissioner helped to reinstate the constitutional rights of the young man.
