Poklonskaya suggested taking income of former spouses of officials under control
The deputy of the State Duma considers that government employees can hide the true accumulatings, registering property and the income to ex-wives or husbands.
Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on safety Natalya Poklonskaya took the initiative to bring the concept ‘affiliates’ in the legislation. This list must include not only close relatives of officials, but also distant ones including the former spouses, the ex-prosecutor of the Crimea considers.
According to her, it will help to deal with the problem of dummy stains. The amendment about affiliates, according to Poklonskaya, can be introduced in article 1 of the law “On Anti-Corruption”. First of all spouses who officially divorced but continue to live together and to conduct joint economy should cause suspicion.
“The dummy divorce allows not to specify real incomes to officials now, at the same time all signs of family life remain among spouses”, Poklonskaya specified.
The question of fictitiousness of divorces of officials in the State Duma was already brought up earlier by deputy from the CPRF Vadim Solovyov. According to his data, in last convocation of parliament there were only 7 divorces, and in present — already 102. It is connected with adoption of the law on anti-corruption 2,5 years ago. However the special-purpose committee of the State Duma did not support Solovyov's initiative.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
