Keywords: execution of criminal penalties, imprisonment, pretrial detention centres, the convicts, economic management

Complex of issues related to selection criteria and the procedure of leaving the convicts in pretrial detention centres are subject to scientific analysis in the article. The need of their adjustment for valuable and effective functioning of this institution is being proved. The expediency of differentiation of the convicts placing conditions in pretrial detention centers depending on the form of these conditions’ expression in the law as primary and secondary is substantiated. The author proves the importance of considering the maximum number of these conditions and their capturing in article 77 of the Penal Execution Code of the Russian Federation. The legal ground for placing the convicts in a retrial detention center for performing economic activities should be a court decision based on submitting a keeper’s representation which requires legislative approval as well. A new version of Article 77 of the Penal Execution Code is offered, the provisions of which should become special rules that allow a pretrial detention center to function fully and effectively in penalty execution as imprisonment.
