Communists propose the use of confiscation of property as an additional penalty for serious and especially serious crimes.
In the explanatory note, they indicate that the possibility of using the confiscation of property as an additional form of criminal punishment operated in the Criminal Code of the RSFSR and in the modern Criminal Code until December 2003 of the year.
In 2006, confiscation of property was returned to the Criminal Code, not as a form of additional punishment, but as “another criminal law measure”, which can be applied to a limited extent, mainly only in relation to property received by a convicted person as a result of a crime, as well as tools and means of committing a crime.
It is proposed to return the possibility of seizure of personal property of the perpetrator, including that which does not relate to a specific crime.
Simultaneously, the Communists propose to maintain the current rules on the confiscation of property obtained as a result of the commission of crimes.
They propose to apply the current confiscation rules only if for a specific crime the Criminal Code does not provide for confiscation as a measure of criminal punishment, Interfax reports
