MOSCOW, May 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Chairman of the Duma Committee on the Regulation and Procedural Organization Sergei Popov told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday that on June 10 the Duma might discuss a possible sanction against Chairman of the Duma Committee on Information Policy Alexei Mitrofanov, who might be stripped of deputy immunity. The decision rests with the State Duma, Popov said. He did not specify the reason behind a possible sanction against Mitrofanov.
Duma deputies might support an inquiry opened by the Russian Prosecutor's General into Alexei Mitrofanov's activities and give their consent to Mitrofanov's immunity status being withdrawn, Popov said.
For his part, Alexei Mitrofanov told ITAR-TASS that he knew nothing about the prosecutor's general appeal to the Duma. "No one has talked to me or asked any questions," Mitrofanov said, adding that the corresponding documents expected to arrive from the prosecutor's office should be properly studied.
