NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM Senator Murat Baktiyaruly proposes to impose capital punishment for sexual violence against women and children, Kazinform correspondent reports.

«Rape and sexual abuse of children, kidnapping children, kidnapping people are the crimes of violence. Unfortunately, our Criminal Code does not impose insufficiently severe punishment for such type of crimes.
