Chairman of the Narrow C.P.C.
I wonder if there isn’t some reduction in the penalty?
This should be put before the Full C.P.C. and checked.
The penalties may only be increased.
 Written in connection with the discussion by the Narrow C.P.C. on August 12, 1921, of a draft decree to combat bribe-taking. On August 16, the decree was approved by the C.P.C. and published in Izvestia VTsIK No. 184, on August 21, 1921.
