It has been a mystery for a few years why new Latvian General Prosecutor Eriks Kalnmeiers, just like his predecessors, has been unable to prosecute any of the criminals from the KGB who have been stealing enormous amounts of money from Latvian taxpayers. For example, why couldn’t he prosecute the criminals from Parex Bank and Riga Transportation who organized the Daimler/Solaris kick-back scheme? A whistleblower gave information to the prosecutors. The FBI completed a case and gave that to the prosecutors also. But despite being handed full information and a full case, the prosecutors still didn’t do anything.
Some new information has come out giving us a glimpse into Latvia’s “deep state” which is the real government behind the fake façade of constitutional democracy.
It seems that General Prosecutor Kalnmeiers is close friends with the KGB Oligarchs which could explain his inability to prosecute them. Specifically, he is in a small hunting group with Yuri Savitsky, Leonids Loginovs, and Guntis Ravis. KGB agent Savitsky controls gas transit in Latvia on behalf of the Kremlin. KGB agent Loginovs controls Port of Riga on behalf of the Kremlin. And, Ravis runs KGB-successor Skonto which among other things charged Latvian taxpayers over a billion euros to construct a small bridge over the Daugava which should have cost a couple hundred million euros.
By extension, we can assume Kalnmeiers is also friends with the other KGB functionaries who run the Latvian economy: Viktor Krasovitsky, Valery Kargin, and Kirovs Lipmans. This could explain why the Latvian government has illegally given billions of euros to these KGB agents while ordinary Latvian people suffer in poverty and nobody ever gets prosecuted.
We continue to hope that bureaucrats in Washington/Brussels/London wake up and realize that Latvia is a KGB Mafia state. If the Western bureaucrats cut off all funding to Latvia until Latvia arrests the KGB Oligarchs, then finally Latvia can have real democracy and prosperity. Millions of people inside and outside Latvia will benefit.
