Vaira Vike-Freiberga

It turns out that the case of the seven-seater graveyard acquired by the former President Vaira Vike-Freiberga in the Riga I Forest Cemetery “by the blat” is not over yet, – the decision of the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) not to initiate criminal proceedings, inspected by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Republic of Latvia. “The examination of the legality and justification of the decision adopted by the KNAB on October 9, 2017 has been initiated by exercising the prosecutor’s supervisory functions,” informs Prosecutor Aivis Zalužinskis of the Investigation Division of Critical Cases of the Criminal Law Department of the General Prosecutor’s Office. No information is yet available on how long this test could take.

As it is known, the KNAB’s opinion after a nine-month inspection in the case of the former President’s “blata tomb” was that indicates a possible misuse of powers.
