MOSCOW, October 17 (RAPSI) – Russia’s government has introduced a bill regulating the issue of seizure of assets belonging to witnesses in criminal cases into the State Duma. The document has been published on the database of the parliament’s lower house.

Amendments are proposed to the Criminal Procedure Code.

The bill stipulates that seizure of assets owned by a person, who is not a criminal case defendant or a person financially liable for the defendant’s actions, imposed to execute sentence concerning civil claims, be withdrawn.

Moreover, the draft law obliges courts to transfer copies of corresponding papers subject to the jurisdiction rules for their further consideration in civil proceedings.
