The SETTLEMENT NOVOBUREYSKIY /Amur region/, August 3. / TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposes to prohibit the investigating authorities to seize the servers and hard drives in the conduct of investigative measures in the enterprises.

To exclude the application for the investigation of measures leading to the suspension of activities of enterprises, including the removal of hard disks from their desktops and servers.

“Why create the conditions creating the impossibility of continuation of activity of the enterprise until the impossibility of paying taxes?”, he explained his initiative.
To reduce the number of inspections
Putin also demanded that the number of unscheduled inspections of entrepreneurs in Russia was reduced to 30% of the target. “Unscheduled inspections are conducted as a rule without the Express approval of the Prosecutor’s office, he said. — There is only 2-3% agreed with the Prosecutor’s office. Everything else is independently. In this regard, I think it is possible to limit the number of unscheduled inspections of entrepreneurs are not more than 30% of the number of planned inspections. Except in situations involving extraordinary circumstances”.
Putin drew attention to the excessive duration of the tests. “They [these checks] now last infinitely long. This has got to stop!” — he stressed. “The term unscheduled inspections should be limited to ten days”, — said Putin.
“Administrative pressure, the pressure from law enforcement agencies is often completely redundant, — stated the head of state. And all the time talking about this, the decisions taken on this matter. And, by the way, many of them work in a positive light. But practice shows that the decisions taken are not enough”.
Release from custody
The President believes that entrepreneurs must be freed from custody, if the police do not behave in relation to active investigations. “Often, when applying to the court for an extension [of the measure], representatives of the investigation did not show conclusive evidence that the result in General is that there are investigations, he said. — I think it is absolutely justified, if the lack of action on the conduct of the investigation the citizens under arrest, mean entrepreneurs will be from custody released.” According to Putin, “it is necessary to practice in the Supreme court and the Prosecutor General, if necessary, to amend the law.” “It is important that decisions were taken quickly,” — demanded the President.
