Abstract

The reforms of domestic criminal procedure legislation carried out in Russia in recent years are primarily aimed at increasing the implementation efficiency of person rights and freedoms involved in the sphere of criminal proceedings, the beginning of which, according to the criminal procedure law, is caused by the receipt of a crime report by the competent authorities and verification activities. 1,890.6 thousand crimes were registered in January – November 2020, or 1.2% more than in the same period last year according to the official statistical data of the Internal Affairs Ministry of Russia. The registered crime increase was noted in 50 constituent entities of the Russian Federation, the initiated criminal case decrease was observed in 35 constituent entities. At the same time, 93.9% of all registered crimes are detected by the internal affairs bodies. Thus, the main crime report verification subject is the internal affairs bodies. However, the pre-trial proceeding effectiveness analysis carried out by the internal affairs bodies refers only to crimes, the analysis of which data on the registered crime report number and the number of refusals to initiate a criminal case is not published by the official data of the Internal Affairs Ministry of Russia. At the same time, one of the fundamental indicators of internal affairs body activities is the increase in the unresolved criminal case number, which indirectly indicates a reluctance to initiate criminal cases until the moment when a person who is subject to further prosecution as a suspect is identified during the crime report verification after taking decisions to initiate a criminal case.
