Ministry of Internal Affairs reveals 180,000 violations in registration of natural persons over January-August
Over January-August 2016 Ministry of Internal Affairs revealed 180 thousand violations of natural persons` registration rules. This was reported by Vice Minister of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan Rashid Zhakupov during the meeting of a work group on the draft law “On introduction of amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on countering extremism and terrorism” at the Mazhilis of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
“We have repeatedly discussed; back in the day, when introducing the draft law`s changes concerning the strengthening of control over migration processes, the Ministry of Internal Affairs proposed to amend Article 492 by reducing the term of no-registration stay from a month to 10 days. This means violation is not a stay with no registration, it is stay without registration from 10 days up to 3 months. We believe 3 months is a quiet long period and are shortening it for a month,” R. Zhakupov said, explaining the norm that provides for administrative liability for the violation.
Vice Minister also clarified that proposed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs punitive measure, which provides for establishing home owner`s responsibility for provision of housing for those without registration, and for allowing the registration of individuals who do not live there, is aimed at citizens` law-abiding education.
According to R. Zhakupov, the Ministry of Internal Affairs does not plan to check citizens` registration totally.
During the work on the draft law, MPs made over 120 amendments of various kinds, including those relating to responsibility for violating the registration rules by natural persons.
