A Just Russia MP from Yekaterinburg insists on dismissal of United Russia MP who punished him for drunk driving
The two MPs knocked heads as far back as when campaigning, according to local media outlets.
United Russia MP from Sverdlovsk Region Armen Karapetyan demands his United Russia colleague Aleksey Korobeynikov to be dismissed as the Credentials Committee Chair, according to ura.ru.
Karapetyan said he had filed his complaint to Sverdlovsk Region Duma Speaker Lyudmila Babushkina. However, it is worth mentioning that it will be the Committee chaired by Korobeynikov that will decide whether to dismiss Korobeynikov or not.
The complaint was filed following a letter condemning Karapetyan sent by MPs (including Korobeynikov), according to the portal. Traffic officers caught Karapetyan driving under the influence. Karapetyan got his driver’s license revoked and was fined as the result. His colleagues decided such a behavior is inappropriate for an MP and sent the letter to A Just Russia Head Sergey Mironov.
However, the two MPs knocked heads long before the incident, as pointed out by the media outlet.
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).
