MOSCOW, November 13 - RAPSI. Broadcasting trials online will be an efficient tool allowing the public to watch trials and to reach their own conclusions about court rulings, Deputy Moscow City Court Chairman Dmitry Fomin said on Tuesday.
He made the statement during Public Chamber hearings devoted to the drafting of the chamber's report on corruption in Russia in 2012.
He noted that proposals must be submitted on broadcasting trials online by the end of 2013, pursuant to a presidential decree.
He added that all citizens will be able to watch the trials of their choice online.
"And then it will be clear whether a judge, an attorney, or a prosecutor chairing or taking part in a hearing is not acting in accordance with his duties or with the law," Fomin said.
Fomin said it will also be clear if a ruling contradicts the provisions of the law and the testimonies given during the trial.
Pursuant to the law, the Public Chamber is elected every three years. It works to strengthen interactions between citizens and the state authorities to protect the rights and freedoms of the public, and to increase their control over public institutions.
