The Prosecution General’s Office would not check the MIA employees involved in the Panama Case
According to official representative of the Prosecution General’s Office of the Russian Federation Aleksander Kurenny, journalists simply made up the facts and perverted meaning of the quote.
Official representative of the Prosecution General’s Office of the Russian Federation Aleksander Kurenny disposed of the information about the possible examination of activities of the offshore scandal’s figurants – deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Aleksander Makhonov and son of deputy head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) Igor Zubov.
According to Kurenny, journalists simply made up the facts and perverted meaning of the quote. Earlier, he was explaining reporters that «according to the Law «OnProsecution Office», prosecutor does not have to give explanations on the materials he examines» and now Kurenny claims that he did not mean that there actually was any examination.
Aleksander Makhonov and son of Igor Zubov figurated in the Panama Investigation, which impressed everyone with the sums on the Russian natural and legal entities’ accounts. The document, which the Prosecution General’s Office, said that the information was being examined.
Last week, the entire world has celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Internet. In the meantime, the Russian legislators have adopted new laws restricting the development of the Russian-speaking segment of the world wide web. The 'fake news' and 'internet insults' laws adopted under the pretext of protecting the society from manipulations and threat, including external ones, violate the Constitution and some federal laws in relation to the right to search for, obtain, and use information. Furthermore, the bill on ‘sovereign Internet’ passed in the first reading by the State Duma leads us directly to self-isolation.
