09.04.2024 153

Deputies of the Senate Committee on Constitutional Legislation, the Judiciary and Law Enforcement Agencies at an expanded meeting discussed laws aimed at improving the legal, economic, social and organizational foundations of state policy on child safety, prevention and suppression of crimes against women and children.

Thus, the Law "On Amendments and Additions to certain Legislative Acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on ensuring the rights of women and the safety of children" proposes the criminalization of beatings and intentional infliction of minor harm to health by transferring formulations from the Code of Administrative Offenses to the Criminal Code, excluding the possibility of reconciliation for crimes related to violence against minors, as well as increased punishment for driving to suicide, intentional infliction of moderate or serious harm to health.

In addition, the senators also considered the accompanying Law "On Amendments and Additions to the Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Administrative Offenses on women's Rights and Child Safety", which provides for administrative responsibility against parents or other legal representatives for failure to fulfill obligations to ensure safety and harassment of minors. It should be noted that these laws were developed on behalf of the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

At the same time, the participants of the Committee meeting considered the Law "On Amendments and Additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on improving legislation in the areas of population migration and the penal enforcement system." The norms of the document propose to introduce a ban on entry into the country for foreigners involved in extremist or terrorist activities, criminal liability for intentional destruction or damage to a video surveillance system, as well as amendments aimed at creating conditions for immigrants to the regions to obtain land for agricultural purposes.

Following the meeting, the deputies decided to send the law to the Chamber for consideration.
