MOSCOW, January 26 (RAPSI) – The Supreme Court of Russia has submitted a bill on creation of independent cassation and appeals courts of general jurisdiction to the State Duma, according to the database of the parliament’s lower house.

Amendments are proposed to laws "On the Judicial System of the Russian Federation", “On Courts of General Jurisdiction of the Russian Federation”, “On Military Courts of the Russian Federation”, and “On the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation”.

According to the Supreme Court, it is necessary to create certain judicial levels for establishment of independent courts considering appeals. Currently, the legality of judgments is being considered by courts issuing these rulings.

President Vladimir Putin earlier supported this initiative stating that creation of cassation and appeals courts would give new opportunities for appealing judicial acts and enhance independence of these instances.
