Draft law banning pedophiles from entering Russia submitted to Duma

12:51 16/09/2013

MOSCOW, September 16 (RAPSI) - United Russia lawmaker Alexander Sidyakin proposed the imposition on foreign child molesters of a 50-year ban on entry into Russia, and submitted a draft law on the matter to the State Duma for review.

The proposed amendments would effectively bar foreigners from entering Russia if they were prosecuted for sexually abusing children in Russian Federation or abroad. The ban would also include individuals convicted of having produced child pornography or participated in child prostitution.

The bill's sponsor claims that he enjoys the support of Russia's Children Rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov. An addendum to the bill cites the UN Human Rights Commissioners office, in asserting that the child sex tourism industry can turn a profit of up to $20 trillion annually.
