The initiative on the right of those who have served prison sentences for intentional grave and especially grave crimes to work as teachers, educators and trainers will lead to mistakes. This was stated by State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.
“We discussed it (the bill – Vedomosti) as a priority yesterday before the start of the plenary session with members of the State Duma Council. The general consensus is that this initiative will lead to mistakes, which could then hurt our children,” wrote he is on his Telegram channel.
Volodin expressed confidence that most parents are ready to entrust their child “only to people with an impeccable reputation.” In addition, the initiative contradicts Articles 31 and 351 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, he added. The State Duma speaker noted that the bill would have to be rejected if the authors themselves did not withdraw the initiative.
October 16 to the State Duma was introduced a bill on the right of former prisoners for serious and especially serious crimes (with the exception of convictions for murder, sexual integrity and sexual freedom of the individual) to work as teachers and trainers. The authors of the initiative were deputies from United Russia Valentina Pivnenko, Irina Rodnina, Vladislav Tretyak, Vyacheslav Fetisov and Pyotr Tolstoy. A day later, Tolstoy removed his name from the bill.
