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.
Early in August, criminal ‘authority’ Yuri Esin a.k.a. Samosval (Dump Truck) has been detained in Moscow. In the 1990s he had a reputation of the ‘godfather’ of ‘Russian mafia’ in Italy and faced 75 years behind bars. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how could the 67-year-old criminal ‘authority’ having close ties with many thieves-in-law escape the Italian justice 20 years ago and avoid any issues with the Russian law enforcement authorities up until his recent arrest.
