Photo: Mikhail Klimentyev/TASS Council for development of civil society and human rights at the President of Russia asks Vladimir Putin to reject and send back for revision laws on punishment for fake news and disrespect for the power. It was said by the head of HRC Mikhail Fedotov. Earlier the HRC sent a similar request to the Federation Council, but the upper house of parliament supported both laws. The HRC hopes that the president will impose the veto on laws. Ekaterina Shulman is a political scientist, the member of HRC "Us did not follow the Federation Council, respectively, we sent the expert opinion to the president. It is possible to get acquainted with it, it in open access. The conclusion concerns all four bills: two main and two attendants. There are contradictions in formulations to changes which are made to the Code of Administrative Offences, changes which are entered in the law "About Information Security". Our main claims consist that laws are superfluous, they repeat provisions which already are in the Criminal code, in the Code of Administrative Offences, in the law "About Media". Besides, they differ in indistinct, uncertain formulations, use unlawful language and open a scope for any law enforcement. In their development there was no need at all, they do not solve any problem which we would have on the legal framework with some insufficiency. They introduce a scope of any law enforcement". The Human Rights Council recommends to reject a package of laws which many representatives of civil society already called barefaced censorship. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
