Day in jail equating to a half in the colony

Day of stay in the remand prison (SIZO) will equate to one and a half days in a penal colony and to two in a colony-settlement. Now a day in jail is the day of the colony. This “news” told the state Duma Committee on state construction and legislation, which prepared the corresponding project.

With the initiative the head of Committee Pavel Krasheninnikov and the Commissioner for human rights Tatyana Moskalkova.

Legislators believe that such a measure can greatly facilitate the lives of prisoners, moreover, in this case, once released about 100 prisoners. Krasheninnikov believes that this measure is actually an Amnesty.

This measure will also apply to other measures of restraint. Night in the prison will equate to two days of restriction of freedom and to the three days of correctional labor.

However, persons sentenced to prison and “strict mode” it does not concern.
