KNAB anti-corruption cops move into historic new headquarters

Latvia's dedicated anti-corruption force, the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) officially moved into new premises May 22.

After three years of renovation work, KNAB will now be headquartered in 3,756 square meters of historic building at number 1, Citadele street - within easy reach of the central bank, Saeima and President's office at Riga Castle. The building dates from 1875.

Prime Minister Maris Kučinskis, KNAB Jēkabs Straume, Minister of Finance Dana Reizniece-Ozola, the Attorney General Ēriks Kalnmeiers, and the Chairman of the Saeima Subcommittee on Prevention of Corruption, Aleksejs Loskutovs (himself a former KNAB director), officially opened the premises with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

KNAB also got a new flag.
