Kidnappers and Murderers of Children to Receive Maximum Penalty Up to Death Penalty
The Prosecutors’ Office decided to massively increase the legal penalty for criminals committing murder starting from the new year.
The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office announced that all prosecutors’ offices nationwide will implement the Murder Processing Standard Justification Plan with such details starting in the new year.
It was decided that crimes making light of human life, such as kidnapping and murder of minors, as well as rape and murder, will be given at least the life sentence in prison and at most the capital punishment.
It was also decided that the sentencing would increase if the crime of murder is combined with other violent crimes or when the victim is a socially disadvantaged person or a female.
