Astakhov seeks to establish lifelong monitoring of persons convicted of such crimes, exclude the possibility of parole and abolish the statute of limitation in cases where the victim was under the age of 15.
"Even the mere fact that he is watched by police will force the pedophile to think about whether it is worth it to go down the criminal path again," Astakhov told the Izvestia newspaper.
The commissioner noted that police supervision is ordered in all sexual abuse cases involving children in Germany, while the United States has publicly available sex offender databases.
"The introduction of such measures would facilitate the timely detection of attempts to resume criminal activity," the ombudsman said, adding that "sexual abuse by adults can be conducted with the help of mobile phones."
According to Astakhov's address to the president, obtained by Izvestia, the number of children who have been recognized as victims of crimes against sexual inviolability in Russia went up by more than 35 percent in 2014.
