Strengthening Legality in the Law Enforcement Agencies Functioning at the Stage of Instituting Criminal Proceedings as a Means of Protecting the Rights of Citizens
In the article the author examines the issues related to the improvement of legislation in the functioning of law enforcement agencies, in particular that on their counteraction to organized drug crime. We are talking about the amendment to Article 146 of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation, according to which criminal proceedings on crimes under Articles 228.1 and 228.4 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on the fact of illegal drugs dealing cannot be initiated in the absence of data on the type, weight and name of drugs, as well as sufficient evidence indicating their transfer to other persons. The law-in-draft is aimed, on the one hand, at protecting citizens, on the other – at increasing the exactingness to law enforcement agencies at the initial stage of criminal – proceedings related to drug crime. The grounds for instituting a criminal proceeding for illegal drug dealing should be the facts of drug transfer to another person, as well as an expert opinion determining their mass, type and name.
