Today in Moscow opened the II All-Russian Forum of graduates of orphanages "We need each other", organized by the All-Russian public organization "Commonwealth of graduates of orphanages "Children of the whole country". On the instructions of the Chairman of Investigative Committee Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin the head of department of educational work of Investigative Committee the Hero of Russia Sergey Vasilyevich Petrov took part in work of a forum.
During the event a question was addressed to the leadership of the Investigative Committee of Russia by a representative of the Republic of Komi - a student of the St. Petersburg Academy of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation. Appealing to protect the rights of her friend, she drew attention to the court's denial of a lawsuit by the administration of the orphanage to deprive the father of the boy she knows of parental rights. And this despite the fact that the father of the child was found guilty of committing a crime against sexual inviolability and sexual freedom of the individual in June of this year. The girl said that the "absurdity of the situation" is that under the law parents can be deprived of parental rights only if they committed an intentional crime against their children, while the convicted person committed a crime against the son's acquaintance. In this regard, the student requested the possible assistance of the Investigative Committee in the matter of deprivation of parental rights of persons who have committed serious crimes at the stage of preliminary investigation of criminal cases.
In connection with the appeal, the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Komi Republic A.N. Isaev to report on all the arguments voiced at the forum, as well as on the measures taken by the agency on this issue.
