Putin has signed a law on finding missing children through geolocation gadgets
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that guarantees the possibility of searching for missing children by geolocation of their mobile devices. The document is published on the portal of legal information.
It is a question of modifying the federal law "On operations research". Previously, the amendments had been approved by the State Duma and the Federation Council.
For the researches, the written consent of the child's parents will be required, as well as a resolution by one of the heads of the body that carries out operations research. In this case, the document must be prepared within 24 hours of receiving the message about the missing child.
According to the law, the forces of the order have the right to receive data on the connections of the child's device with other subscribers, as well as its position from the technical communication channels during the day with the notification of the court. Within 48 hours of the start of the search, the police will have to obtain a court decision or stop the search.
