Exhibition vandals fined

Two men have been convicted of vandalising the controversial 'People of Maidan' exhibition in central Riga in October, LSM's Latvian service reported Monday. 

On December 11, a Riga court heard guilty pleas from the two unnamed men who had been charged with causing damage to the exhibition by American photographer Sergey Melnikoff, which is supported by the Latvian Foreign Ministry.

The men agreed to reimburse Melnikoff €490 for the damage they caused.

The exhibition itself was subsequently refused permission to continue in central Riga after the organizers failed to provide promised security.

It has since appeared in several regional towns without incident.
