YABLOKO begins collecting collecting comments and signatures to the draft law УOn PoliceФ

Press Release
September 10, 2010

YABLOKO begins collecting comments and signatures from the citizens and experts to its amendments to the draft law on police with the help of a specially created web-site. The web-site will be opened for comments until September 15.

YABLOKO has already prepared a package of amendments to the draft law on police which was loudly announced by the government as a more democratic law than the present.

The draft was for the first time published in the Internet for a feed-back from the public. The developers of the law had stated that one of the key goals of the draft was creation of police instead of the present УmilitiaФ. However, experts, journalists and ordinary citizens were shocked by the draft as it provided unprecedented powers to the police envisaging virtually no control over it and considerably worsening the situation for the society. According to many experts, the law will turn the country into a large concentration camp.

YABLOKO will submit its amendments to the parliament and hopes to persuade the legislators to substantially change the draft.
