Commanders have now no right to put the guilty subordinates on a guardroom (the soldier - the contract employee there could send for 7 days, and srochnika - on 10). On a guardroom those military men who are detained on suspicion in commission of crime can contain henceforth only or are detained under the judgement. Now only judges, inspectors, public prosecutors or investigators can make such decision.

These scissors brought different interpretations in the rights of the civil and military person. Them also have decided to eliminate.

Under the judgement the guilty military man can knock about on to a lip no more than 48 hours. But if and after that the court has decided to take for final decision acceptance suspected or accused under guards on it it is taken away yet more than 72 hours. In total - no more than 5 days.

Guardrooms have appeared in our army at Peter I. The officers who have got under anger of commanders from - for inefficiencies, heedlessness or drunkenness were their first inhabitants. The soldier then on a lip did not put - them punished blows of ramrods (shpitsrutenov), driving through a system.

both in XIX, and in the XX-th centuries garrison and ship guardrooms have found sad glory small prisons (such institutions the most furious commanders) usually ordered. That in imperial that during the Soviet period on guardrooms of people broke (For increase of efficiency of re-education strewed a floor in chambers bleaching powder and watered it, forcing people to inhale caustic gas). Sitting on guardrooms until recently were gratuitous labour: arrested persons were thrown on building of summer residences, houses, the greenhouses, by some chiefs sold them for a while to directors of factories, at which burnt the plan.
