31 January 2017

On 30 January, a final meeting of the interdepartmental working group elaborating a draft law on release of gravely ill prisoners was held at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia.

Participants in the meeting discussed the draft law and summarized the result of the group’s work. The document contains a package of amendments to the Criminal and Criminal Proceedings codes of Russia. In particular, it is proposed to improve the order of conditional release due to disease, and delay of serving sentence on grounds of medical treatment.

The final results of the interdepartmental working group’s work will be summarized by the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia in February 2017.

For reference, the working group was formed following an interdepartmental meeting held by High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Tatiana Moskalkova on 15 November 2016.
