MOSCOW, May 22 (RAPSI) – Chairman of the Association of Russian Lawyers Vladimir Gruzdev proposed to develop a new draft of the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code during the Stolypin Forum’s business protection session on Wednesday.

He proposed to create a special working group to develop the draft.

According to Gruzdev, the need of the new draft codes is caused by numerous amendments violating the legal framework.

The Stolypin Forum is a platform for constructive dialogue between Russian and foreign experts, governmental bodies and development institutions, representatives of business-community and mass media, the event’s website reads.

During the session concerning protection of business entrepreneurs and heads of government bodies discuss aid to prosecuted businesspersons and steps to drop the enforcement pressure and soften its consequences.
