Anti-graft squad reveals co-op deal with Moldova

Latvia's anti-graft police concluded an information and experience exchange agreement with Moldova's anti-corruption authority last year, Jaroslavs Streļčenoks, the head of the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB), told the press Friday.

The anti-graft authority revealed it has concluded an agreement with the National Anticorruption Center of Moldova over exchanging information and experience.

Latvian banks were allegedly used to siphon off and launder funds in the recent disappearance of one billion dollars from Moldova.

The KNAB chief's presentation of the bureau's work over the previous twelve months also revealed that in 2015 KNAB received 1,160 official submisisons from individuals and legal entities, in addition to more than 3,000 calls to its corruption hotline - up by 68% on 2014.

Despite its long-held reputation for internal wrangling, the anti-corruption bureau managed to launch 16 criminal proceedings against 33 suspects.
