In Russia: You Can Lie To Keep Out of Jail or You Cannot Commit Perjury!

Russia’s Supreme Court has ruled that a suspected criminal can deliberately lie to prosecutors and court without fear of being punished for it.

What do you think about that tidbit of information?

Take a look at this Russia Today article that tells you about – The Russian Constitution allows a suspect to use any means to defend himself, unless they are specifically forbidden before hand. Lying to officials is not on the bad things to do list, since a testifying defendant never takes an oath to tell the truth.

How is that for and interesting fact?

For us from America that is a strange concept…

Windows to Russia!
