Opinion on the draft law toughening the penalties for «shaping», will make Thursday the parliamentarians at the meeting of the Duma Committee on family, women and children. According to «Parlamentskaya Gazeta», the head of the Committee Tamara Pletnev inclined to give a positive opinion on the initiative.

The newspaper reminds that, according to the document, if the violation is committed in the territory of Russia, «shapero» will face a fine of from 1 to 2.5 thousand rubles. For violation on the territory of Moscow and Saint-Petersburg provides for fines of from 3 to 4 thousand rubles, and for re-committing a misdemeanor, violators can expect an administrative arrest up to 15 days.

According to «Parlamentskaya Gazeta», the Committee Chairperson Tamara Pletnev gives a favourable opinion on the initiative.

«I can’t tell the position of the entire Committee on the issue of «train surfers falling», because the main discussion will unfold on the question of what measures need to be applied in this case, and to whom they will relate. Of course, the illegal actions of the transport necessary to prevent not only committing, but also with the application of advanced preventive measures, as in the case of suicidal manifestations of adolescents in «groups of death», — informs the edition of her words.

Pletnev said that the issue of «capetinga» Teens no one bows to illegal acts is, from her point of view, adds to the complexity.

«Shaping» for young people is adrenaline, which they want to throw away. Of course, that these offences is necessary to prevent the invocation of guardians or parents. The problem lies in the fact that the latter is unable to monitor the actions of the child, while at work, and usually say that this extreme — the choice of the adolescents themselves», she said.

According to Pletnev, the participants expect practical guidance on law enforcement practice, not only from the Committee but also from the representatives of the interior Ministry.

«Units of the transport police should continue to work to identify and arrest offenders on the Railways, to put them on record, enter information in the special registers. We expect to hear the position of law enforcement bodies on the question of whether to impose a penalty for «shaping» not just for parents, but also direct participants in dangerous riding on the roof,» she said.

According to Pletnev, the initiative will require amendments to the Administrative code relating to the reduction of the age of administrative responsibility to 14 years. This, however, from her point of view, unacceptable.

«We need not just to find common ground among representatives of all concerned agencies, but to present society with the optimal solution which would satisfy the interests of all, and most importantly — children. Therefore, the discussion will bring together experts who can offer relevant measures for solving the problems, which are not in existing law,» she concluded.
