Prosecutor's office finds no evidence in charges against ex-lawmaker
MOSCOW, November 1 - RAPSI. The Prosecutor General's Office has not found any evidence confirming that former A Just Russia party member Gennady Gudkov committed tax crimes and illegal business activity, Nezavisimaya Gazeta has reported on Thursday, citing Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin.
Gudkov was earlier stripped of his deputy mandate under these charges.
On August 1, the Investigative Committee said signs had been uncovered that Gudkov was involved in illegal entrepreneurship, although deputies are prohibited from doing business while in office. On September 14, the State Duma passed a resolution stripping him of his mandate.
Gudkov, who took part in the protest rallies last December, has denied the charges.
