MOSCOW, June 29 (Itar-Tass) — The State Duma will debate a petition from the Russian general prosecutor to strip Communist deputy Vladimir Bessonov of deputy immunity partially before July 6, chairman of the State Duma Committee for Regulations Ildar Gabdrakhmanov told reporters on Friday.
“According to the regulations, the committee is to debate this issue within a week,” the lawmaker said. He assumed that the request over Bessonov “may be put up for debates in the State Duma next Friday,” but refrained from giving any forecasts, what decision the lower house of parliament will take on the issue.
On June 18, the Investigation Committee has made a request to State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin to give consent to open a criminal case against Bessonov, but the documents were brought back in this agency, because the inquiry found that only the general prosecutor can file such petition in the State Duma.
“The police turned in the investigation department of the Russian Investigation Committee in the Rostov Region with a plea to bring Vladimir Bessonov to criminal responsibility, as the latter inflicted bodily injuries during an unauthorized rally.” The inquiry prior to the investigation showed that on December 2, 2011, Bessonov staged an unauthorized rally in Rostov-on-Don convening over 100 people on the square in front of the residence of the Russian presidential representative in the Southern Federal District. Meanwhile, Bessonov named all claims of the Investigation Committee as “absolutely groundless.”
