The bill on limiting the pre-trial removal of children from their parents will allow minimizing state interference in family affairs. This was stated by the deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education and Science Larisa Tutova, the press service of the deputy said.
On July 10, a bill was introduced to the State Duma to limit the extrajudicial procedure for removing children from families. As the speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin noted, "the purpose of the amendments is to limit as much as possible the extrajudicial procedure for removing children from the family, protecting the interests of both the child and his parents." The initiative, one of the authors of which was the head of the Committee on State Building and Legislation, Pavel Krasheninnikov, is proposed to amend the Family and Civil Procedure Codes, as well as the Law "On Police".
“The current extrajudicial procedure for the removal of a child, provided for in Article 77 of the Family Code, does not guarantee the absence of abuse by the guardianship and guardianship authorities. Such guarantees can be provided exclusively by the judicial procedure for the consideration of the case,”said Larisa Tutova.
In her opinion, it is very important to observe the coherence of the work of all mechanisms when questions concern the further fate of minors. The joint work of the judicial system, guardianship authorities and internal affairs bodies will reduce to zero all possible excesses and minimize state interference in family affairs, the deputy chairman of the committee noted.
