Five state Duma deputies will check for corruption

Moscow. September 11. INTERFAX.RU — the state Duma Commission on control over reliability of data on incomes of deputies has decided to conduct a review in relation to five deputies from fractions “United Russia” and “Fair Russia”, said the Chairman of the Commission Natalia Poklonskaya.


“Members of the Commission have supported me that it is necessary to conduct a series of tests against a number of deputies, which, perhaps, broken the law on combating corruption,” said Poklonskaya on Tuesday following the meeting of the Commission.

Such requests will be sent to the Prosecutor General, the Federal financial monitoring service and the FSB.
