Ex-Deputy Konstantin Shirshov convicted of fraud released early parole
Instead of five years, the former MP, who tried to sell the mandate, spent in prison a little over two years.
Former State Duma Вeputy from the Communist Party Konstantin Shirshov, convicted of swindling, was released early parole. As reported by TASS with reference to the Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, the former MP spent two years in prison.
Recall that Shirshov, according to the decision of the Moscow City Court, was sentenced to five years in prison in May 2014. The former people's representative was found guilty of extortion of € 7.5 million from a businessman for assistance in getting the deputy mandate.
At Stanislav Grebenshchikov’s workplace and home, searches within the case of abuse of official powers were conducted. After the interrogation of the official, the question of his detention will be decided.
The detention and arrest of the Panamanian lawyers back in February was not associated with the publication of Panama archives. Jurgen Mossack and Ramon Fonseca are suspected of involvement in a corruption scandal in Brazil.
