Georgia to punish those turning to thieves in law for help
The law about the "thieves' community" is going to be tightened.
Georgia is considering a draft law that is going to significantly tighten the current policy fighting against thieves in law. Deputy Interior Minister Natia Mezvrishvili said that those supporting criminal leaders would be held liable just as those who identify themselves as ones. So, a person who turned for a dispute resolution to a mafia boss or a thief in law will be held criminally liable. Punishment also awaits those who provide financial, material or other support to the criminal community, Georgia Online reported.
The new bill also implies toughening of previously adopted measures. Penalty for membership in the "thieves 'community" is to be increased from the current 5 to 8 years in prison to 7 to 10 years, and having a thief status will be punishable by 9 to 15 years of imprisonment against the current 7 to 10 years.
The bill was considered in the first reading at a today’s meeting of the parliamentary committee on legal issues.
The article on "Membership in the thieves' community" was introduced in the Criminal Code of Georgia in 2005 under Mikheil Saakashvili, who first declared war on organized crime.
