Riga social service official sacked following reports on violations at care homes

Welfare Minister Jānis Reirs has sacked Inese Paudere, the top-ranking official responsible for social care centers in Rīga, reports Latvian Radio February 5.

Three separate disciplinary proceedings were started following an investigation by LTV's Forbidden Methods, revealing possible abuse and mistreatment of children at the Kapseļu street Riga social home for children, and in one of them serious violations were discovered, sparking a criminal investigation.

The investigation on Paudere probes alleged violations of the rights of a parental guardian.
