Foreign nationals committed 2.5 times more administrative offences in Kazakhstan in 2014 than they did in 2012, Tengrinews reports citing the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan.

In 2012 foreign citizen committed 62,037 administrative offenses, in 2013 - 90,421, while in 2014 this number rose to 156,937. Hence, an upward trend is clearly evident.

The Ministry also spoke about bringing foreign diplomats to administrative responsibility. "Foreign nationals who have immunity are prosecuted for administrative offenses on the same basis as everyone else," the Interior Ministry said.

The issue of bringing administrative action against foreign diplomats was raised during the recent on-line conference with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Yerlan Idrissov. On July 1, he said that the Foreign Ministry of Kazakhstan was considering fining foreign diplomats who violate traffic rules in Kazakhstan based on the principle of reciprocity. He clarified that the proposed penalties would be imposed on representatives of the countries where Kazakhstani diplomats had been fined.
