MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — The commission for control over income and property under the Federation Council upper house of the Russian parliament said it has not found any facts of violation of the business ban by the senators.
"All the house committees’ reported that they had held the sessions over compliance with the restrictions stated in the law on the status of the parliamentarian," deputy FC speaker, chairman of the commission Yuri Vorobyov said at a plenary meeting on Wednesday.
The commission reviewed the mass media reports on a number of FC members. "We've carefully examined these publications: I've met with many FC members whose names were mentioned. I held more than 10 talks during which my colleagues explained their actions to comply with the restrictions and bans, and showed the necessary documents," the parliamentarian said.
There have been no official inquires from the authorized bodies to specifically check this or that senator," he emphasized.
In late September, FC speaker Valentina Matviyenko ordered to check the house members for compliance with the restrictions envisioned by the law, on the wave of high-profile story around lower house lawmaker Gennady Gudkov, who had been stripped of his mandate for running businesses. Matviyenko gave the commission a month to report its findings.
