Two cases launched for crimes against Ukrainian refugees

Last week, the State Police launched two criminal proceedings for offenses against Ukrainian refugees, LETA reported March 21.

One of the processes has been launched for damaging a car in Ziepniekkalns, Rīga. According to a Facebook post in the refugee help group Gribu palīdzēt bēgļiem, the windows had been smashed and an explosive thrown in. The other case regarded stealing a license plate from a Ukrainian car in Āgenskalns.

In another case, the police have launched an administrative process in connection with an attack on a person and ripping off a Ukrainian flag from the person's clothes. Police have also launched a series of investigations on war-supporting inscriptions or symbols, including the use of the letter “Z”.

State Police ask that residents call 110 if they have information about possible violations of law and threats to public order.

In a press release on March 18, the State Police indicated that the police had started a number of administrative processes in relation to an unauthorized meeting in Daugavpils on March 14, which aimed to remove the Ukrainian flag from the city school.
