MP Grevcova banned from six Saeima sittings

Take note – story published 1 year and 3 months ago

On Thursday, February 23, the Saeima decided to exclude Glorija Grevcova (For Stability!) from participating in the next six sittings of the parliament, said the Saeima Press Service.

The decision was taken on a proposal from the Mandate, Ethics, and Submissions Committee, examining the application of Member Edvīns Šnore (National Alliance) asking to assess the video distributed on social networks by Grevcova on January 22 of this year, which was recorded at the Museum of Occupation.

The Committee has previously established that Grevcova has infringed paragraphs 4 and 7 of the Code of Conduct for Saeima deputies. They state that the Member respects in good faith the commitments expressed in the solemn declaration of the Saeima deputy, avoids words, gestures, and other acts in public statements, which may be offensive, does not use insulting or disrespectful statements, and bases their arguments on facts, their fair interpretation and reasoning.

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. The State Security Service (VDD) later took on the investigation.

Grevcova is already on trial accused of providing false information to the Central Election Commission (CVK).
