Amendments to the Criminal Code aimed at protecting citizens’ constitutional rights

Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law On Amendments to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and Certain Legislative Acts.

The Federal Law aims to protect, through the criminal law, people’s constitutional rights and prevent criminal attacks on their honour, dignity and reputation.

The Federal Law will add to the Criminal Code an article introducing criminal penalties for slander, that is, for knowingly disseminating false information defaming the honour and dignity or undermining the reputation of another person. Also added to the Criminal Code is an article introducing criminal penalties for defamation of judges, jurors, prosecutors, investigators and investigative officials, and court bailiffs.
