The term raider takeover may appear in the Criminal Code: what does Opora Russia say about this?
“OPORA RUSSIA” is an association with the goal of resolving issues that Russian entrepreneurs face.
The business association made a proposal to supplement the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation with the term “raider seizure”. A draft law of this kind was submitted to the proposal to the representative of the President of Russia in the North Caucasus District – Chaika. The latter sent the draft to the State Duma for consideration. It was made public on November 24th, and the bill was drawn up by Murat Dudarev.
Dudarev notes that the proposal was accepted by Yuri Chaika openly. He immediately sent the initiative to the State Duma for consideration.
Dudarev also noted that on November 20, Opora Rossii sent this bill to the address of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation.
The explanatory note contains information according to which the term should be introduced in the Criminal Code in order to form further responsibility in the implementation of raider seizures. The aim is also to reduce the level of impact on the business of criminal procedural and judicial issues.
Changes in accordance with the bill will affect Article 169.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. According to the new amendments, liability will be introduced for what restricts the rights and interests of an individual entrepreneur or legal entity. It will ill be limited independently, third-party interference in the functioning of the company, the seizure of its property through raider seizure. The composition will act in the event of major damage in the amount of 3 million rubles or more.
As for the term “raider seizure”, it should include illegal possession of company property or illegal possession and control over the activities of the company, which were committed under the influence of violence or manipulation, as well as abuse of office in this part. The exact wording of the term will be given in the new edition of the Criminal Code.
Some have already noticed that the wording of the “raider takeover” was reflected exclusively in the legal literature.
Time forces us to quickly change norms so that responsibility is relevant. For example, in August the general director of the La Max company, as well as the manager of the “3 whale” shopping center – Mordkovich – made public the information about the raider seizure. With a statement about this, he went to the prosecutor’s office. A criminal case was initiated under the article “Arbitrariness”.
