MOSCOW, January 30 (Itar-Tass) - United Russia has recommended its member Vadim Bulavinov to offer explicit explanations regarding the Investigative Committee's claims to him and promises unbiased review of his case.
"The State Duma will review the case materials on Vadim Bulavinov, if the Prosecutor General's Office sends them," deputy house speaker Sergei Neverov, who is Secretary of United Russia's General Council, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
"In such issues, we've always stuck to the principle that all are equal before the law, and that no exceptions can be made here," he underlined.
"As for Vadim Bulavinov, we'll recommend him to give the necessary and complete explanations regarding the claims to him," he added.
SK spokesman Vladimir Markin told Tass the investigators had asked to strip Bulavinov of immunity. Lawmaker Vadim Bulavinov is suspected of abusing his authority as mayor of Nizhny Novgorod in the project to build a trade and entertainment center, which lost the city budget more than 6000 million roubles.
Under the parliament procedure, only the prosecutor general can ask the State Duma to strip a lawmaker of immunity.
Bulavinov stepped down as Nizhny Novgorod mayor in the autumn of 2010.
