Primorsky Krai Debtors will Face Suspension of Driver’s License and Foreign Passport
VLADIVOSTOK. August 31. VOSTOK-MEDIA – Russian Government drafted a bill stipulating suspension of a debtor’s driver’s license, stated Artur Parfenchikov, Federal Bailiff Service Director, during his recent visit to Primorsky Krai.
Artur Parfenchikov focused on the necessity to broaden range of restrictions on debtors. The draft bill will extend to suspension of drivers licenses, boatmasters license, etc. In addition such restrictions may hold true for hunting license and fishing license.
“It is not fair that a bad debtor evading to pay his debt, all the more so the one who is criminally non-compliant with the child support provisions, spends a good deal of money on leisure and private pleasures," - A. Parfenchikov clarified. He also stated that these restrictions are implemented in other countries and yield tangible results.
Besides, according to A. Perfenchikov, it is possible to impose restrictions not only on travelling of a bad debtor abroad but also on issuing foreign passports.
