The interior Ministry plans to grant police the ability to open the car
The police will be able to open the car, if the Law “On police” will be made to these amendments
On the website of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia has proposed the introduction of amendments to the Law “On police”. In order to better safeguard the rights and freedoms of citizens of the Federal law “On police” should be supplemented by a number of norms, in particular, a proposal was made which the police can in certain, specified by the law situations to open the car.
Here’s what they say on the website of the Ministry of internal Affairs:
“The police in order to save citizens life and health are at risk (for example, a person in a vehicle needs or provide first medical aid or in the car unattended, abandoned baby, etc.), shall be empowered to carry out the autopsy of the vehicle.” In principle, the initiative is good and needed. If there is a risk to humans, it needs to neutralize to a minimum by any means.
Also, the police will receive “the right opening of the vehicle if it is locked, the perpetrator (committing) a crime.” The initiative also raises questions. Citizen caught red-handed, and he locked himself in the car. Do not wait before he tries anything.
In addition, police will be able to open cars, if they have reason to believe that they are without special permission “objects or things withdrawn from civil turnover”, to retrieve a drunk driver at an accident, as well as the audit reports of the threat of a terrorist act.
The only thing here is the question – “will have reason to believe that they are without special permission “objects or things withdrawn from civil turnover””. This will be determined? On the eye? Or should be a Bolo or other documents clearly indicate the need to gain access to a car?
Bill these refinements are only looking at the issue of crime and illegal actions is much broader, affecting not only the automotive industry but also other activities and the lives of citizens. And it provides that suppression of plunders of another’s property proposes to grant the police the right to search citizens, including if there is reason to believe that they hide objects in their possession, theft, and to Supplement the regulations providing for the possibility of penetration of police officers in residential and other premises, to land plots and areas for the detention.
As usual, the interior Ministry Boyko reported that the bill will allow to improve the legal capacity of policing to protect citizens from illegal encroachments.
