.... In the history of Russian parliament since 1991 there were only four instances of removal of diplomatic immunity. The last instance took place in 2010 and it involved Ashot Yegiazaryan of LDPR party -- he has been accused in grand larceny and fraud related to the development of Moscow hotel. In 2001, Vladimir Golovlev of SPS party has been stripped of immunity. However, at that time the Duma has reached an ambiguous decision -- they approved criminal prosecution but banned the arrest.
