Natalia Poklonskaya announced hunt for corrupt MPs
The Head of the State Duma Commission for Control of deputies’ income called on public figures and journalists to send her dirt on fellow parliamentarians.
Head of the State Duma Commission for Control of deputies' income Natalia Poklonskaya (Edinaya Rossiya) announced the launch of declaration campaign. She reminded parliamentarians-colleagues that they must provide the declaration and information before April, 1.
In addition, Poklonskaya encouraged community members and journalists on her Facebook page to help her in the fight against corruption.
"I propose to inform about known facts of violations of anti-corruption laws by deputies, not only online, but also sending official letters to the State Duma in accordance with the law,” she wrote in the social network.
She notes that the information obtained must not be anonymous, otherwise it will not be the basis for verification.
Poklonskaya does not exclude the drafting of rules relating to fictitious divorce as a way of hiding assets.
"Now, the fictitious divorce gives the possibility not to indicate the real incomes of the officials, while all the signs of family life are saved," said Poklonskaya earlier.
The MP has already sent a request to the law enforcement and judicial structures to "generalize existing practice and challenges in legislation." After a response from the institutions appropriate amendments will be prepared.
For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
