The Russian parliament, the State Duma, can change the death penalty moratorium in connection with the case of Nurpasha Kulayev - the only terrorist, who remained alive after the Beslan hostage crisis in September of 2004. The information about it was released from the chairman of the Duma's committee for security, Vladimir Vasiliev.
Vasiliev added that he did not know in which way the Duma was going to consider the issue, RIA Novosti reports. In addition, Vladimir Vasiliev believes that one should not withdraw the moratorium on death penalty in Russia.
