As we move through 2020, the EBRD and Eurostat continue to refuse to acknowledge the whistleblowing against them and confirmed Russian Mafia fraud criminal Valdis Dombrovskis has become European Commission Executive Vice President responsible for Financial Institutions. Does the Putin Regime control the EBRD, Eurostat, and the European Commission? Hopefully Brussels, London, and Washington will wake up soon.

All 2019 Articles

Here are the most important articles from 2019. We have pdf files also in case links go down because of bribery and threats. Sadly, there was no progress with law enforcement in Latvia in 2019. The prime minister is a criminal, the general prosecutor is a criminal, the European commissioner is a criminal, and the head of SAB is a criminal. The mainstream media is still publishing fake stories that Parex Bank collapsed because of the United States or Sweden and fake stories that Citadele Bank is cleaned up. Eventually, we hope Latvia will have an honest government and will prosecute and sue every person and institution that participated in the Parex looting and cover-up to recover billions of euros for the benefit of the Latvian people. It is possible. The corrupt former prime minister of Croatia is now in prison and the corrupt prime minister of Malta was forced to resign and is likely to be prosecuted thanks to a whistleblower, journalists who do their jobs, and activist citizens.

Krisjanis Karins & Tambovskaya Mafia

On 7 March 2019, Saeima Deputy Aldis Gobzems (Independent) released evidence that Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins (Jauna Vienotiba) received millions of euros from a company registered in Cyprus and linked to a Russian citizen. We thank and applaud Gobzems for making this information public.

We are not surprised to learn that Karins is on the payroll of a shady Russian. Karins was a recipient of the May 2005 whistleblowing letter against Parex Bank, which he ignored even though he was Minister of the Economy and it was the largest fraud in Latvian history. We can show from emails that he was informed in January 2006 that the whistleblower was hiding and receiving murder threats, and he ignored that also.

The result was that Parex was looted, the national economy collapsed, and 20% of the population fled. The largest recipients of money flowing out of Parex appear to have been: the Kargin family, the Krasovitsky family, Yuri Shefler (US Treasury warning list), Oleg Boiko (US Treasury warning list), Eduard Khudainatov (Tambovskaya Mafia and US Treasury sanctions list), and Grigory Rabinovich (Tambovskaya Mafia). The Tambovskaya Mafia, according to the Spanish government, was a violent heroin and sex-slave trafficking organization linked to Vladimir Putin which used money-laundering platforms at Parex.

Another detail from the same whistleblowing is that Karins is bankrupting Riga City. Part of the whistleblowing was about Solaris Bus paying bribes to Riga City through Parex. This racket started in 2002, Karins learned of it in 2005 and did nothing, and therefore the racket continued until 2018 with perhaps one hundred million euros stolen. This is small compared with the billions that disappeared from Parex, but it is significant because it shows that as long as Karins keeps lying about the whistleblowing and lying that Parex collapsed because of ‘Sweden’ (that is the official story from Jauna Vienotiba), we can expect the same criminals to continue stealing more money from us.


JKP exposes Vienotiba-Gunvor-Putin link

Vienotiba Party (formerly Jaunais Laiks and now Jauna Vienotiba) has worked hard since the 2005 Parex Bank whistleblowing to establish itself as Vladimir Putin’s favourite party in Latvia.  While spreading false propaganda about being pro-EU and pro-NATO, the party has run a fraud and disinformation campaign to help Kremlin-linked bankers loot billions of euros from Latvian taxpayers.  We hope voters know the old saying ‘actions speak louder than words.’

Gatis Eglitis is a candidate for Saeima on the Riga list (people who vote outside Latvia will be counted for the Riga list).  We recommend Riga list voters should select the Jauna Konservativa Partija (JKP) and mark a plus next to Eglitis.

Eglitis made a post on Facebook on 17 August 2018 with a public statement that the Parex bailout was a heist, not a rescue.  This made him the first Latvian Saeima candidate to say the truth about Parex.  Parex was the money launderer for Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia.

Now, in the video below, Eglitis exposes that the Vienotiba-OIK-Latvenergo scam is also linked to Putin, through Putin’s notorious Gunvor company which skims money in corrupt oil and gas deals.

Latvian connection to Trump dossier

The headlines all week have been about the Trump dossier which is a memo by ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele containing unverified information that the Putin Regime has been blackmailing Donald Trump to allow Russia to attack Ukraine.

Part of the memo is about Alfa Group of Russia, which was closely linked to Parex Bank of Latvia.  Alfa Group oligarchs Mihail Fridman and Piotr Aven are close friends with Parex oligarchs Valery Kargin and Viktor Krasovitsky.  According to the media, Alfa was negotiating a purchase of Parex in 2007.  Alfa apparently decided not to purchase Parex and instead a billion euros of Parex assets disappeared and Parex liabilities were handed to Latvian taxpayers in 2008 as Parex’s offshore banking employees and clients were shifted to Citadele Bank and AB.LV.  The government made no attempt to recover the missing billion and didn’t bother to prosecute anyone despite clear evidence of massive frauds.

Aven in particular is well known in Latvia because he together with Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler control Latvijas Balzams.  When Latvian oligarch Andris Skele invited them to Latvia to become owners of this state company, there were approximately seven assassinations of Latvian citizens linked to the transaction.  Parex made illegal fraudulent loans to Latvijas Balzams which were never investigated.

The memo names Latvia as a country where Russia is bribing people.  This is consistent with the fact that Latvian politicians decided to give a quarter of the national budget to Parex in 2008/2009 thus causing the economic and demographic collapse of Latvia.  Still today there has been no investigation and the government is still lying that “Sweden” caused the collapse.

We welcome a whistleblower from within the UK/US intelligence agencies.  For many years, the UK/US intelligence agencies have been protecting Putin’s oligarchs by keeping information about their crimes secret.  Maybe now they can arrest the criminals instead of protecting them.

Kalnmeiers and the KGB

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.

Privatbank nationalized, a repeat of the Parex saga?

The Ukrainian government announced on December 18th that it nationalized Privatbank.  According to the Kiev Post, the reason is because 80% of the loan portfolio is insider loans.  In other words, the bank was a pyramid fraud and the assets were stolen.  Now, Ukrainian taxpayers are expected to repay the bank’s deposits.

The numbers seem to indicate that the Ukrainian national debt could double from this.  It’s a repeat of the nationalization of Parex Bank which doubled Latvia’s national debt.

Privatbank maintains a subsidiary in Latvia that is specialized in money laundering.  Latvia is an excellent location for money laundering because (1) it is in the European Union and (2) the government is 100% corrupt and never enforces money laundering laws.

The big money laundering oligarchs, Valery Kargin and Viktor Krasovitsky of Parex and AB.LV in Latvia, Ilan Shor with several banks in Moldova, and Ihor Kolomoisky with Privatbank in Ukraine and Latvia, all appear to be friends with each other because often their money laundering schemes are done in cooperation.  They have now successfully destroyed the economies of all three countries.

We wonder when the international community will stop bailing out these frauds and instead force Latvia/Ukraine/Moldova to put these oligarchs in jail and take back the stolen money?

UPDATE: Government nationalizes PrivatBank, guarantees deposits

 

Ansis Ataols Berzins

The Latvian government, right now in 2016, is trying to lock an anti-corruption protestor in prison.  So much for any dreams that the government is getting less corrupt…

Back in January 2009, while the government was destroying the Latvian economy by fraudulently bailing out the pyramid fraud at Parex Bank, Latvian activists rightfully and correctly defended themselves by protesting at the parliament building and the Parex headquarters.  The bailout fraud was a crime against Latvia on a scale not seen since World War II.  The government doubled the national debt with the money mostly going to offshore account holders from Russia.  Up to 20% of the Latvian population was forced to move to Western Europe to escape the economic devastation.

Parex was the main money-launderer for Vladimir Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia.  The government had full information that Parex was a pyramid fraud because a whistleblower gave details to the prosecutors in May 2005.  The fraud was the largest in Latvian history, however the government didn’t investigate.  Instead, the government made the fraud larger and gave awards, promotions, and cash to the criminals.  The whistleblowing included information about an assassination, which the government didn’t investigate.  And, the whistleblower received death threats for years, which the government also didn’t investigate.

However the government treated the January 2009 protest very differently.  Suddenly the prosecutors had lots of time and energy to do investigations!  They immediately opened criminal cases against 70 protestors.  Some of those heroes are currently outside of Latvia and cannot return.  This is ironic, since officially the government is asking Latvians outside of Latvia to please return home since the Crisis which the government says was caused by “Sweden” is supposedly finished.

For example, the government is forcing Ansis Ataols Berzins to stay in exile outside of Latvia by threatening him with 20 months in prison if he returns.  He made an appeal for justice at a recent Latvian festival (see link below).

We hope the European Union and United States will wake up and realize that Latvia is a fake democracy controlled by a small circle of oligarchs who are robbing and terrorizing the Latvian people.  The EU and US could help by issuing arrest warrants for the government officials who were responsible for the Parex fraud (Godmanis, Dombrovskis, Repse, Rimsevics, Karins, Maizitis, Sudraba, Rubess, Vilks, Lagzdins, etc.) and adding them to sanctions lists.  Threatening an exiled European anti-corruption protestor with prison to protect corrupt Russian billionaires is horrible tyranny, unacceptable within the EU and NATO.

 

 

 

 

Documented: Parex Bank and Tambovskaya Mafia

Attached below is a document dated 29 May 2015 by the “Fiscalia Especial Contra la Corrupcion y la Criminalidad Organizada.”  It is the case prepared by Spain against Vladimir Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia.  The Tambovskaya are involved in looting governments, international heroin trafficking, and murdering informants.  The wars in Chechnya and Ukraine in which tens of thousands of people were killed could also be blamed on Tambovskaya.

It was already known that Mikhail Rebo (sometimes spelled Rabo) was the main money launderer for Tambovskaya and his wife Tatiana Rebo was manager of the Parex Bank office in Berlin.  Now we have more details.

Parex Bank is mentioned in the document on pages 130, 137, 276, 277, 278, 379, 380, and 392.  Parex sister company International Overseas Services is mentioned on page 130.  Several other notorious Latvian banks are mentioned throughout.

Parex is mentioned again on pages 404, 405, and 406 including specific mention of Tatiana Rebo.  Throughout the document there are references of money going through Latvia and Germany, with Germany sometimes used to mean Parex Bank Berlin.

Page 429 mentions “Rabinovich” who owns a store in Riga.  This could be a reference to Parex shareholder Grigory Rabinovich who was a close friend of the Parex oligarchs.  When Parex was looted prior to the handover of Parex liabilities to European taxpayers, the bank made a fake unrecoverable loan to Rabinovich which seemed to be a refund of the money he paid to purchase Parex shares.  The other minority shareholders including Americans and Swedes didn’t get refunds.  Obviously this was illegal however nobody got punished except taxpayers.

On page 429 starts a discussion of “Chaika” who seems to be Russian General Prosecutor Yuri Chaika who is known to have laundered money through Latvia, and “Vova” who is Vladimir Putin.

The Latvian government and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development have been running a propaganda and disinformation campaign since 2009 to blame the disappearance of the assets of Parex on the United States and Sweden.  Even though it was already revealed in 2014 that the Latvia/EBRD/Parex bailout of 2009 was a cover-up fraud, most newspapers refuse to publish truthful articles and are still sticking with the United States/Sweden story.

The signer of the fraud, Valdis Dombrovskis, is now European Commission Vice President responsible for the integrity of the euro.  Another fraud organizer, Bank of Latvia Governor Ilmars Rimsevics, is on the council of the European Central Bank.  The ECB is the largest investor in Latvian bonds and Rimsevics knows that the bonds were issued fraudulently to bailout a Russian Mafia bank.  The only person Latvia prosecuted in connection with the fraud bailout was whistleblower Ilmars Poikans who exposed Rimsevics for paying a huge bonus to himself after organizing the fraud.
