Tuesday, August 1, 2017 - 14:43
The Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, proposes to impose the death penalty as the highest penalty for corruption.
"What I was thinking about, and what I'm going to do it in the near future, is that I will tighten up the laws that deal with corruption, and the punishment will be very serious. You know that we have an order for the imposition of the death penalty if necessary, or its application, to be more precise, as a measure of social justice. I think that corruption will now fall under this," Zakharchenko said in an interview posted on his official website.
He noted that consultations on this issue have already been held with the People's Council of the DPR.
"We split over some of the nuances of the wording of this law, but these are technical points and we will solve them. Depending on the harm that the person has inflicted on the state, they will be punished according to the laws of wartime - the deprivation of life, that is, the death penalty," Zakharchenko added.
