MOSCOW, March 6 - RAPSI. The Federation Council and the Supreme Court will be drawing up a bill to prohibit Supreme Court judges from having foreign bank accounts and foreign securities, an upper house member said on Wednesday.

"After a similar bill is adopted for members of parliament and government, we will likely propose, in coordination with the Supreme Court, similar amendments to the law on the Supreme Court," Anatoly Lysakov, member of the Federation Council's Committee on Constitutional Legislation and Legal and Judicial Issues, said at a house meeting on Wednesday.

In mid-February, Vladimir Putin submitted amendments to the State Duma on the Law on the Government, which will ban top state officials from having bank accounts and securities abroad.
