The reduction of the investigation time for economic crimes is necessary, since the current standards for the consideration of criminal cases are outdated and need to be changed. Alexander Demin, head of the State Duma Committee on Small and Medium Enterprises, told about this to Parliamentary Newspaper.

The Ministry of Justice came up with an initiative to ban the arrests of entrepreneurs for economic crimes of minor gravity and to reduce the investigation time for economic crimes against businessmen. The corresponding draft amendments to the Code of Criminal Procedure were published on the portal of draft normative legal acts.

Demin, supporting these proposals, noted that every violation of the law must be held accountable, the only question is how expedient it is to throw a person behind bars.

“If someone has violated the law under an economic article, causing intentional or, on the contrary, unintentional damage, then, in my opinion, it is necessary to pay an appropriate fine, compensate the state for losses, but certainly not imprison an economic entity, thereby depriving the state budget of income from tax revenues and, on the contrary, taking a person in custody for state maintenance, ”the deputy shared his opinion.

He also noted that reducing the investigation time is a logical step on the part of the Ministry of Justice, since digital solutions related to document flow and information exchange are being introduced in almost all areas. The current order of consideration of cases is mainly focused on outdated standards, concluded Demin.
