Vējonis most likely arrived in KNAB's closed yard in a car. LETA observed on Tuesday evening how a Volkswagen car with tinted windows left the closed yard. There was a man sitting next to the driver and a silhouette of another person visible in the back seat.
According to information available on LETA's photo archives, the same car was used by Vējonis and his wife when they arrived at the inauguration ceremony of President Egils Levits.
As reported, the KNAB on September 19, 2018, started a criminal procedure on large-scale graft, abuse of authorities in the construction sector. The Competition Council, meanwhile, is investigating an alleged breach of the Competition Law - illegal cartel agreement.
On Tuesday both institutions raided offices of construction companies and state officials. KNAB reported that at least ten largest construction companies have been involved in the crimes.
Vējonis was elected in June 2015 and his term ran out summer 2019. Notably, the former Latvian president survived a serious health scare early in his presidency.
