it is proposed to abolish the statute of limitations for crimes of a terrorist nature in Kyrgyzstan. Such an initiative was made by the deputies of the Parliament Kanybek Imanaliev (Ata Meken) and Janybek Bakchiev (Bir Bol), who heads the parliamentary committee on the rule of law and the fight against crime.
According to the deputies, terrorism has become one of the most dangerous forms of modern international (transnational) crime, which "violates the normal functioning of the organs of power, life and health of citizens." Therefore, the authors of the bill believe that terrorist activities and crimes of this nature "can't have justification, whatever reasons the organizers and perpetrators of this kind of crime voice." Deputies state that "the process of revealing a terrorist group or a terrorist requires hard work, which can take years and decades."
According to the Criminal Code of the KR, terrorism refers to a very serious act and the statute of limitations for such crimes is only 10 years, so the deputies offer to abandon the practice. In particular, they propose to eliminate the statute of limitations from the Articles 226 (Terrorism), 226-1 (Financing of terrorism), 226-2 (Involvement in terrorist crimes or other assistance), 227 (Hostage-taking), part 3 of Article 232 (Hijacking of air, water transport or railway rolling stock).
