MOSCOW, August 1 (Itar-Tass) — During the investigation in a lawsuit filed by Bulgarian citizen Ivailo Zartov the Russian Investigation Committee has proved the information that State Duma deputy Gennady Gudkov was participating illegally in business, particularly in the companies, which are registered in Bulgaria and Gibraltar, spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The event of the crime under Article 289 of the Criminal Code for illegal participation in business activities was found in Gudkov’s actions,” he said.
“The corpus delicti in this crime or the lack of it will be checked in the investigation,” Markin added.
The inquiry continues, after which the information will be passed in the prosecutor’s office and the State Duma “to take a decision within their jurisdiction,” he said. So, the spokesman of the Investigation Committee actually did not rule out a possible address to the State Duma to give consent to strip deputy Gudkov of deputy immunity for opening the criminal case.
