Criminal case brought against MP Grevcova for denial of occupation

The State Security Service (VDD) has initiated a criminal case against Saeima Deputy Glorija Grevcova (For Stability!) in connection with public statements possibly expressing the gross denial of the occupation of Latvia by the USSR and Nazi Germany, the VDD said on January 31.

As earlier reported by LSM, on January 22, following a visit to the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, the scandal-prone member of parliament published a video on the social network TikTok, saying that she was in the “so-called Museum of Occupation”. She also stated that facts do not align with those presented at the museum, and that the tour guide has told his own “parallel, fictional history”, as she emphasized in her video. She described the information provided as "propaganda", sparking outrage and calls for law enforcement agencies to take action.

Saeima deputy Edmunds Jurēvics (New Unity), following these statements, made an application to the Prosecutor's Office. VDD later took on the investigation.

Criminal proceedings were initiated on January 30, 2023, on the public glorification, denial, justification or gross dismissal of genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes against peace, and war crimes against the Republic of Latvia and its residents.

The VDD will provide additional information on the progress of the investigation in line with the progress of the criminal proceedings and reminds that all persons are innocent until proven guilty.

Grevcova, whose recent actions seem not hugely conducive to stability, is already on trial accused of providing false information to the Central Election Commission (CVK).
