New Saeima deputy accused of possibly lying about workplace

Take note – story published 1 year ago

The State Police (VP) has referred the case against the newly elected 14th Saeima deputy Glorija Grevcova (For Stability!) to the prosecutor, on the provision of potentially deliberate false messages to the Central Election Commission (CVK), VP said October 19.

The VP's statement to the media does not mention the name.

As reported earlier by LSM, the candidate claimed that she worked at woodworking company SIA "Dolo" as an advisor in her official filing to the CVK. However, according to the company itself, Grevcova was only employed in a junior capacity at the company several years ago for little more than a year, and certainly not as an advisor.

The VP indicated that during the pre-trial investigation it was established that the person had submitted information on themselves to CVK, including information in the section “Workplace and Jobs”, as well as “Education”, and signed it as true.

A number of witnesses have been interrogated in criminal proceedings, including different institutions. One person has been identified as a suspect in criminal proceedings. 

The VP said that the information gathered during the investigation provides grounds for believing that the person committed a criminal offense with his or her activities, for which criminal liability is intended for providing false information to the State authority. For such a criminal offense, the Law provides for temporary deprivation of liberty or probation supervision, or community service, or a fine.
