Russia to Consider Life Sentences for Funding Terrorism

A bill introducing life imprisonment for anyone convicted of funding terrorism is expected to be submitted to the Russian parliament this week, one of Russian lawmakers told the press.

      Andrei Lugovoi, a member of the nationalist LDPR party, said the bill was prepared by a group of lawmakers from various factions as part of a broader package of anti-terrorism initiatives.

      The bill stipulates that punishments for certain terrorism-related charges will be toughened from 10 years to 20, and “life imprisonment will be introduced for a number of terrorism-related crimes,” he said.

      The bill would also scrap the statute of limitations for terrorism-related crimes and make terrorism convicts ineligible for deferred sentencing.
