MOSCOW, June 15 - RAPSI. The State Duma commission dealing with the reliability of data on deputies' incomes and assets is ready to consider applications dealing with discrepancies between MPs' incomes and expenses, Ernest Valeyev, the commission member and Security and Anti-Corruption Committee deputy chairman, told RIA Novosti on Friday.
Earlier, the media reported that some deputies' incomes and expenses do not coincide with their declarations.
Valeyev said NGOs, media and political party leaders have the right to submit an application to the commission requesting an examination if a deputy's expenses apparently exceed his income.
The deputy also noted that the State Duma adopted in the first reading a draft law on controlling officials' expenses. In accordance with the document, if an official is unable to prove that he legally acquired the property, it will be allocated to the government.
At the same time, he said the State Duma will adopt in three readings a document by the end of the spring session. If approved, the law will come into effect as soon as it is published.
