Penal reform

Obiter is very pleased by Medvedev's recent interest in reform of the penal system and lack of judicial discretion with regard to sentencing. Community service for at least of the 890,000 Russians in detention throughout the country would make a lasting impact on the country and a system that has clearly been disfunctional for some time now.

We continue to monitor these developments and welcome readers' thoughts or observations as always.
