One of the largest corruption cases in Latvian history was the Kempmayer digital television scam.
Parex Bank was involved, however the Latvian media never mentions Parex in articles about Kempmayer. Why not?
As usual, nobody has been punished – except the Latvian taxpayers and the international taxpayers who give money to the Latvian government.
This email from 2004 lists Parex crimes (including Kempmayer) that were uncovered by the United States government. The Ambassador of the United States was repeatedly refusing invitations to meet Parex president Valery Kargin. This list of crimes was provided as the reason.
