29 July, 2010

俄罗斯总统梅德韦杰夫签署了一个给予俄罗斯安全部门更大权力的新法律。

星期四签署的这个法律给予前身是苏联时代的克格勃的联邦安全局对那些它认为即将犯罪的人进行拘留或是发出警告的权力。

该法的批评人士说,新的法律将允许联邦安全局对批评政府的人士进行恐吓。

支持这个法律的人说,新的措施将有助于减少犯罪以及加强人们对非法活动的警觉。

根据新的法律,嫌疑人可以被罚款以及或是最长可以被拘押15天。

Russian President Dmitri Medvedev has signed a new law giving the country's security agency greater powers.

The law signed on Thursday gives the Federal Security Service, the successor of the Soviet era KGB, authority to detain or issue warnings to people it believes are about to commit a crime.

Critics say the new law will allow the FSB to intimidate critics of the government.

Supporters say the new measure will help reduce crime and increase awareness about illegal activities.

Under the new law, suspects could be fined and or detained up to 15 days.
