Take note – story published 1 year and 3 months ago

Rīga Pardaugava Court on March 14 sentenced Saeima member Glorija Grevcova of the 'For Stability!' party to 160 hours of community service for providing false information to the Central Election Commission during the 14th Saeima elections, reported the LETA newswire.

Prosecutor Edijs Pastars had demanded 200 hours of community service and a fine of EUR 6,200 for Grevcova. The prosecutor claimed that Grevcova had herself signed a form submitted to the Central Election Commission, which provided false information about her education and past work experience, as previously reported by LSM.

Grevcova continued to insist that she was not guilty of anything and that no wrongdoing on her part had been established.

As reported, the State Police launched a criminal case against the newly elected Saeima member Grevcova for providing false information about her job to the Central Election Commission.

Despite the accusations, Grevcova is able to continue work as the member of the parliament. A lawmaker is suspended from the duties only when a convicting court verdict comes into force.

Since being elected to parliament with the newly-established For Stability! party in October 2022, Grevcova has found herself the center of controversy on more than one occasion.
