Legal State build themselves

October 4 2005

October 4, the press center of the AIF on the initiative of the founders of the movement "Resistance" was a round table discussion on problems of protection of witnesses, victims and other participants in criminal proceedings. The participants discussed the theme with the legal, psychological, and journalistic point of view.

Since the beginning of the year in Russia came into force on relevant federal laws. But, unfortunately, it does not solve many problems directly associated with such situations. The rights of suspects, defendants and convicts are protected much better than the rights of victims of crimes and those who are called upon to protect society from crime. There is absolutely no psychological protection of these categories of citizens. Gangsters and fraudsters escape accountability, the victims lose all hope of justice and in public opinion formed the legal nihilism. There is absolutely no psychological protection.

The current situation was discussed from various angles - legal, moral, informational, psychological, social. Participants truly began searching for new ways to effectively address the problem - the joint efforts of the government, NGOs and the victims themselves citizens. Led a round table - the head of the initiative group of social movement "Resistance" Olga Kostina.

The initiative group of social movement "Resistance", which consists of political consultants Olga Kostina, the vice-president of the Union of Lawyers of Russia Alexei Alexandrov and People's Artist of Russia Svetlana Vragova, did everything to draw public attention to this serious and highly topical subject. In their ranks they have invited those who believe that the legal state and civil society should be built in Russia is not on paper but in real life, and not abstract citizens or officials, and all Russians.
