Transparency: deputies from Moscow Region have citizenships in Malta
If this information is confirmed, the parliamentarians may face an early resignation.
Deputy of the Moscow Regional Duma Aleksey Mazurov and Igor Khodin, the people's deputy of the urban district of Lobnya, have a dual citizenship, according to some sources. In particular, parliamentarians may have Maltese passports, the Russian branch of Transparency International reports.
According to human rights activists, absolute namesakes of deputies were found in the list of people who received Malta passports in 2015. The organization found the list of the names in the Newspaper of the Government of Malta. In addition, the list contains names that coincide with the exact names of the family members of both deputies.
Moreover, Mazurovs has an apartment for 1.5 million euros ( $ 1,7 million) on the island of Malta. The family bought a mortgaged house.
Transparency has already asked the prosecutor's office of the Moscow Region to verify this information. In case if double citizenship of deputies is confirmed, they will have to lose their powers ahead of a schedule.
