The Party of Regions does not see grounds for canceling K. Komski’s mayoral candidacy

The responsible secretary of the Party of Regions, Vytautas Kamblevičius, informed “Siena” about this position. In his assessment, the court decision made last week does not constitute grounds for nominating another candidate for the post of mayor of Pagėgiai.

“Half of the leaders are judges”

One of the arguments is that the convicted person was not K. Komskis himself, but his son, who managed the family business, which, according to the court, was deliberately destroyed in order to avoid paying solid compensations. “That’s his son there, but not him,” said V. Kamblevičius.

In the opinion of the interviewer, criminal cases are a kind of daily routine of Lithuanian politics.

“Because of that conviction, it’s here… half of the party leaders are convicted, and nobody pays attention,” the politician thought.

The responsible secretary of the Party of Regions noted that K. Komskis does not belong to the party, and the Pagėgiau branch decided to put forward his candidacy. “He was chosen by the department as that candidate, people will appreciate that. We do not interfere”, said V. Kamblevičius.

Compensations and a tractor were promised

Algirdas Komskis, the son of K. Komskis, was convicted of the criminal bankruptcy of the Agrolira company, waste of assets and fraudulent accounting. The verdict was passed on the basis of the pre-trial investigation, which was started on the basis of the material collected in the journalistic investigations of “Siena” and “Tauragė Kurjeri”.

The politician’s son was sentenced to 7 months imprisonment, with its execution suspended for 18 months, and 10,000 fines. EUR fine. More than 160,000 civil lawsuits have also been settled. for the amount of euros.

According to the judgment of Tauragė district court judge Elena Simonavičienė, A. Komskis was found guilty of ruining “Agroliras” in order to avoid paying compensation to the family of a young man who died in an accident. The accident that occurred in 2017 was caused by a drunk “Agroliras” employee who was driving a company car during work.

About 100 thousand EUR compensation was jointly awarded to the culprit of the accident and “Agroliras”. However, the deceased man’s relatives, including two young children, did not receive most of the money because K. Komski’s company went bankrupt.

According to the court’s decision, A. Komskis is obliged to pay more than 50 thousand to the relatives of the deceased man. euros. About 110 thousand more. EUR awarded according to Sodra’s civil lawsuits.

Suspicions were brought against K. Komski in this case during the pre-trial investigation. After the case was transferred to the court, only his son was charged, as sufficient evidence was not collected against the candidate for mayor of Pagėgiai.

It turned out in court that K. Komskis himself organized a possibly fictitious transfer of shares of “Agroliras” to ordinary workers from Pagėgiai. To one of them, in exchange for taking over the shares of a bankrupt company, the mayoral candidate promised a tractor. The man never got the tractor.

The court verdict has not yet entered into force. Whether A. Komskis will appeal it to a higher court is not yet known.

“Siena” could not contact K. Komskis and the leader of the Party of Regions J. Pinskas.
