MOSCOW, March 23 (RAPSI) – The Government Law-Making Commission has considered a drafted bill on the introduction of the professional discretion notion in defense, according to Chair of the Association of Lawyers of Russia Vladimir Gruzdev.

It is supposed that professional secrecy would involve not confidential information but which distribution is restricted. In some sense such information will be equal to banking secrecy, medical privacy and other confidential data protected by law, he said.

The professional discretion will include in particular the civil authorities’ military buildup activities such as reserve programs or fortification works, according to Gruzdev.

Amendments are proposed to the Law on Defense.
