The profile state Duma Committee on constitutional legislation and state construction prepares to reject the draft law the deputies of the Communist party faction, which proposes to ban public display of homosexual orientation. As told RBC in the Committee, “United Russia” decided that the initiative would duplicate the previously adopted law on prohibiting propaganda of homosexuality. The resonant draft law on the punishment of coming out will be considered on Monday, November 18.
The authors of the bill Ivan nikitchuk and Nikolay Arefiev proposed to amend the Code of administrative offences (Cao) the penalty for “public expression of non-traditional sexual relations”. Deputies believe that the “public demonstration of their distorted sexual preferences in public places” should be subject to a fine in the amount of four or five thousand. For similar acts committed in the educational and cultural institutions, the Communists propose to introduce, in addition to fines, arrest for up to 15 days.
The Deputy Chairman of the Committee on state building United Russia Dmitry Vyatkin RBC expressed confidence that the position of his colleagues on this bill will be negative. As the Deputy explained, this is primarily due to the fact that from a legal point of view, the bill “absolutely illiterately formulated”.
The legal Department of the state Duma previously gave a negative opinion on the draft law, noting that it is unclear what exactly is “a public demonstration of their distorted sexual preference”. In addition, drew the attention of lawyers, the bill does not specify who will draw up reports and consider cases under the new article. However, for some strange reason the review disappeared from the page of the bill on the official website of the state Duma. We will remind, the document was criticized and members of the public.
Nikitchuk and Aref introduced a bill to the state Duma on 29 October 2015. Before nikitchuk in a very cheeky expressions commented on the media initiative. In particular, he stated that people stand a step higher than animals, and homo sapiens ought not “to Pandurii each other”. He also said that “kissing bearded men, in addition to vomit, anything not called”, called gays sick people and even rudely asked the journalist of the edition Meduza, asks the member about his attitude to the LGBT community, will rise whether he is “the man” “anything in pants”, “to nail him in the back”.
