MOSCOW, September 10 (Itar-Tass) – A Russian State Duma Commission for control over the authenticity of income and property data entered by deputies has recommended to consider the possibility of depriving Gennady Gudkov, the deputy head of “A Just Russia” faction in the Russian State Duma, of his deputy mandate.
The majority of the commission’s members voted for the proposal, thus considering as valid the information of the Russian Investigation Committee that Gudkov had violated his status of deputy which bans parliamentarians from being engaged in commercial activities.
Vladimir Vasilyev, a member of the United Russia party who heads the commission, said the recommendation should be sent to State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin who’s supposed to submit it to the plenary meeting.
