Punishment softens

Verkhovna Rada passed law on humanization of criminal liability, offered by the Cabinet of Ministers, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

250 out of 256 lawmakers, registered at a meeting, voted affirmatively.

People, responsible for diversion, banditry or terrorist act, aged 14-16, will not be prosecuted.

Besides, it is provided that a person, who committed a medium severity crime because of carelessness, will be released from criminal responsibility according to effective repentance or reconciliation of guilty and victim.

Also, according to the draft law, a court will be able to confiscate property, only in case a crime was committed for mercenary ends.
