Parliament passed a bill on criminal liability for violation of  self-isolation in an emergency

ArmInfo. The National Assembly of Armenia at an extraordinary meeting on March 23 in the second and final reading amended the Code of Administrative Offenses and the  Criminal Code.

As RA Minister of Justice Rustam Badasyan noted in his speech, the  amendments are intended to resolve issues related to the state of  emergency in connection with the spread of coronavirus. According to  legislative amendments, for violation of the requirements of the  self-isolation regime, a citizen faces a fine in the amount of 100 to  250 times the minimum wage. In addition, for violations of the  requirements established during the state of emergency, for  publications that go beyond the restrictions, the media will be fined  100-300 times the minimum wage.

If publications are not deleted during the day, a fine will be  re-applied to the media, this time in the amount of 500 to 1000 times  the minimum wage. If a citizen, through negligence, harmed the health  of another person, then he faces a fine in the amount of 300 to 500  times the minimum wage, or arrest for a period of 1 month with the  deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions.

In the event that the victim suffered serious damage to his health,  the fine will be from 500 to 700 times the minimum wage, or arrest  for 2-3 months, or imprisonment for 2 years.

In the case when an infected citizen maliciously infected a healthy  person with an infection that is dangerous to the latter's life, the  offender will be fined from 400 to 800 times the minimum wage, or  arrest for up to 1 month, or imprisonment for up to 1 year . And if  this crime is committed against two or more people, or a minor, the  fine will be from 800 to 1000 times the minimum wage, or arrest will  be applied for a period of 1 to 3 months, or imprisonment for a  period of 1 to 3 years.

Violation of the regime of self-isolation, which, through negligence,  will lead to the death of a person, will lead to the arrest of the  perpetrator for a period of 2 to 4 years.

The bill  was passed with 118 votes in favor.
