State Duma is setting up a working group to draft a package of bills on counter-terrorist activities
The State Duma is setting up a working group to draft a package of bills on counter-terrorist activities. Representatives of four committees - security, defense, constitutional law and civil law - have been delegated to the group, but it is clear that the security committee chaired by Vladimir Vasilyev will be the driving force of the group. The group will review the migration and transport laws, and will possibly reconsider some parameters of the 2005 budget regarding law-enforcement bodies, Rossiiskaya Gazeta reports. As soon as on September 16, the working group of the four committees, which will, in essence, become the new "counter-terrorist" committee, is to present its ideas. According to Mr. Vasilyev, amendments can be expected to the migration law and the laws on transport security. Airport services may have the opportunity to prevent suspicious passengers and luggage from boarding planes, and the regulations on borrowing cars and other vehicles (today an owner can write a statement of permission for another driver without needing a notary to counter-sign it) could be toughened. Deputies are also planning to involve senators in the anti-terrorist activity, which is why the working group yesterday considered forming a joint commission with the Federation Council under the conventional name "on countering terrorism, separatism, and religious extremism." Viktor Ilyukhin, deputy chairman of the security committee, believes that "a reliable legislative base" has been created for combating terrorism, "and the problem is not legislation but ineffective law-enforcement." He recalled that this year alone, the State Duma has adopted three amendments to the law on the fight against terrorism, stipulating tougher punishment not only for terrorist activity but also for complicity with terrorists.
