The MPs are Happy and want to return the death penalty in time of hostilities
People's the people's Deputy and the commander of the regiment of special purpose "Dnepr-1" Yuri Birch and a group of MPs are preparing a draft law on authorization of the death penalty in Ukraine. About this Birch on the first day of the week told the Ukrainian edition.
Thus, according to him, it is planned that the law permits the death penalty will only be valid at the time of engagement.
"We haven't submitted a draft law, because my group has yet to write. There are several controversial issues. Once it will be fully ready - just register in the Verkhovna Rada. But I Wish to emphasize that this draft law will have a limited effect only during the conduct of hostilities, " said Birch.
Birch had previously stated that he supports the legalization of the death penalty for treason and corruption. According to his vision, for the rape of women and children to guilty also need to apply the death penalty.
in Ukraine, the moratorium on the death penalty the first time began to operate in 1995. But then the ban was in force only a few months. The new moratorium was introduced in 1997. Since in Ukraine there was not a single death penalty.
at the end of December 1999, the constitutional Court of Ukraine ruled that the death penalty is contrary to the Constitution, what finally closed the way to her resume. Because of this, in 2000 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine introduced changes to the criminal rule of Ukraine, which had permanently removed the concept of "death penalty" from the official list of criminal punishments of Ukraine and replaced it in jail for the rest of your life.
