Ulyanovsk: MP to sue ICR for libel and damaging his business image
The Ulyanovsk Region Legislative Assembly Commission for Validation of Information of Income and Property that examines information MPs file in their tax returns completed an inspection of MP Mikhail Rodionov’s case.
The inspection was instituted after the ICR asked to dismiss the MP.
Meanwhile, the Commission did not find any reason to dismiss him. Moreover, the Committee did not provide any proof he should be dismissed.
That is why Rodionov is going to sue the Committee for libel and damaging his business image, according to his attorney Aleksandr Paulov.
The Department filed a request to the Assembly asking to dismiss the MP in March of 2017, as it turned out. Rodionov owns the Zavod Trekhsosensky. It was now former Department Head Aleksey Evdokimov who filed the request.
The main Department’s complaint was that Rodionov is the owner and incorporator of a foreign company. This violates the Federal Law 'On General Principles of Incorporation of Legislative (Representative) and Executive Agencies of Public Authorities of the Russian Federation Constituencies.'
Moreover, the MP moved more than 17 million euros abroad, according to the Department. The money was spent on purchasing, renting, and maintaining property and building a yacht. Rodionov did not list this information in his tax returns.
Meanwhile, the Assembly Credentials Committee did not find any evidence this was true during the inspection. Rodionov was not dismissed.
The Russia’s Investigative Committee central office has taken the case of former Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Marat Oganesyan for investigation. However, the St. Petersburg’s Investigative Committee dept (regional dept where the case had been investigated previously) did not find state budget damage in the Zenit Arena fraud case.
Among his accomplices are a lawyer, who presented himself as the plenipotentiary of the self-proclaimed republic in the International Criminal Court with the United Nations, and an entrepreneur, already serving a sentence for attempting to seize a building.
Certain details have become known about the crime of which Denis Nabiullin is suspected. The “unidentified prisoner”, against whom the Public Monitoring Commission member Denis Nabiullin detained in Moscow had committed swindling, turned out to be infamous fixer and fraudster Dionisiy Zolotov (Tumarkin).
