Nemiro denies being guilty and stresses that there is no criminal record in his actions.
Nemiro told LETA that he had a conversation with the KNAB and that he had a suitable status as a person against whom criminal proceedings had been initiated. As he has signed the non-disclosure, he cannot provide details of the circumstances of the case.
The portal “Pietiek.com” reports that the KNAB has initiated criminal proceedings against Nemiro after the second part of Article 323 of the Criminal Law “Bribery”, which applies to “giving or offering a bribe, ie material value, property or other benefits, or a bribe promising, in person or through an intermediary, to a public official, whether or not he is acting in an official capacity, whether or if they have been committed by a public official or by a group of persons by prior agreement “.
The portal admits that the criminal proceedings have been started as a rather ordinary “political market”, with politicians agreeing on a specific position, which in the KNAB’s view could then also be considered a bribe. The situation is related to the fact that a local government deputy Māris Feldmanis (“KPV LV”) has been promised the position of the chairman of the council in a conversation in the Saeima.
The politician emphasized that political agreements are a common part of Latvia’s policy and in this way the current Prime Minister and President of Latvia have also been elected to their positions.
Nemiro doubts that this situation corresponds to the essence of the criminal proceedings, as there is no bribe and no criminal composition. Asked about the conversation in the Saeima mentioned in the portal, the politician noted that political meetings take place “with everyone all the time”.
As reported, the new chairman of Dobele County Council Ivars Gorskis (LZS) and the owner of the decisive vote in the vote on overthrowing Feldmanis have not been given any status in the criminal proceedings initiated by KNAB, both deputies told LETA.
Gorskis confirmed that KNAB employees had talked to him, but did not comment on the situation in more detail, as he was not entitled to do so. At the same time, the chairman of the council has no information that he has been granted any status in criminal proceedings. “We are cooperating with the institution. We hope that the situation will be resolved in the near future,” Gorskis said.
Feldmanis has also met with KNAB employees. The thinker also has no information that he has been granted any status in the criminal proceedings.
On Wednesday, the Latvian Television program “Panorama” reported that the KNAB had performed procedural actions in the Dobele County Council. According to unofficial information, KNAB employees may be interested in the recent change of power in the municipality.
