09:46 13/04/2018

MOSCOW, April 13 (RAPSI) – The Justice Ministry of Russia is developing a bill establishing a procedure of control over mandatory undertaking treatment by convicted drug addicts, according to the ministry’s statement.

Currently, a court sentencing a drug addicted person to a fine, community service, supervised release or deprivation of the right to occupy certain posts or to engage in a determined activity may order such a convict to undergo compulsory treatment for drug abuse, medical or social rehabilitation.

However, a procedure of control over execution of these obligations by drug addicted convicts has not been established yet, according to the ministry.

The bill envisages approval of such a procedure by the Justice Ministry along with the Health Ministry.

Amendments will be proposed to the Criminal Code, the statement reads.
