Entrepreneurs and bankers were released from criminal punishment for damages

5 апреля 2023, 06:48
Persons who have committed a crime for the first time in the field of illegal entrepreneurship (Article 171), banking (Article 172) or evasion of repatriation of foreign currency earnings (Article 193) will be able to avoid responsibility.

The State Duma in the second and third readings adopted a bill on expanding the list of cases in which there is a possibility of exemption from criminal liability under a number of articles of the Criminal Code in case of compensation for damage. The amount of damage must be returned in full to the injured party, in addition, double the amount of damage will be transferred to the country's budget. The total amount of payments will be three times higher than the violator's income.

The innovation will also affect those who have committed crimes on a particularly large scale for the first time. Here we are talking about crimes related to the violation of copyright and related rights and causing property damage by deception or abuse of trust.
