Monitoring of the Federal Legislation dated 5.05.2003

Decision of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation No. 7-P of April 24, 2003 on the Case of Constitutionality of the Provision of Item 8 of the Decision of the State Duma of May 26, 2000 on the Amnesty in View of the 55th Anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 Pursuant to the Appeal of Citizen L.M.Zaporozhets

The norm of the challenged item envisages termination of the processed by the bodies of investigation and courts cases of crimes committed before the entry into force of the Decision of the State Duma by persons suspected or accused of culpable negligence with the maximum punishment not exceeding five years of prison.
Earlier, the improperly arranged dental operation caused a damage to the health of the applicant followed by a lawsuit against the dentist.
According to the victim, the challenged norm orders the courts to terminate the processed criminal cases pursuant to the act of the amnesty without examining their essence, thus disabling her efficient protection in court as a victim in a criminal case.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognised that the challenged norm does not prevent the court from examining the processed criminal cases followed by the decision to apply the act of amnesty and does not prevent the victim's access to legislature and efficient protection in court, including compensation for the damage, and, therefore, does not contradict the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
The Decision is entered into force immediately after annunciation.
