Kremlin Is Back To Its K.G.B. Ways?

Posted by Info on 30/04/2010

International Herald Tribune: 28.4.2010:The Kremilin-loya Russian Parliament is considering a bill to restore practices once linhked to the K.G.B., like special summonses and warnings.

The legislation would allow security officers to summon individuals for informal talks and issue written warnings about “inadmissible” participation in antigovernment activites like protest rallies.
The warnings would be considered “obligatory”, and those who failed to follow them could face fines or 15 days in jail.

Journalists who refuse to follow the demands of security officers or who prevent them from fulfilling their duties could face charges under the legislation.
Ludmila Alexeyeva, head of Moscow Helsinki Group:” It’s not even like Soviet times”, when K.G.B. officers were under Communist Party control.
