Today at 10.00 a press conference at the Radisson Latvia conference center, where the deputy of the Riga City Council Baiba Broka (VL-TB / LNNK) will explain the criminal proceedings of the Bureau on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction (KNAB) in recent days.
Brock's lawyers will also be present at the conference.
As it was reported, KNEB was arrested on Monday for a bribe of EUR 20,000, which was received by Mr. Brock, as well as for business partner Gontis Ravis and Ivars Miller, affiliated with the construction company Skonto Construction. On Wednesday, all three were released with security standards.
KNAB has announced in advance that the office has received information that the civil servant, as deputy chairman of the procurement commission, could work in the interests of certain entrepreneurs. The facts at the disposal of the facilitator give reason to believe that the civil servant accepted the offer of a bribe of entrepreneurs by prior arrangement, making a bribe as a donation to the society. The possible bribe amount is at least 20,000 euros. The agency LETA is aware that the KNAB has donated to the Brothers Biathlon Federation.
For the last three years, the Latvian Biathlon Federation has received three donations of EUR 20,000, including one from SIA "Roadeks", which is also indirectly owned by Rick, according to information available from Firmas.lv.
The information at the disposal of the Agency LETA shows that this bribe is possible in connection with the construction of the future script house of the University of Latvia. Purchase of a building of the house was announced last spring, trying to clarify the bidding procedure with the negotiations. The estimated purchase contract price was initially 33 million euros.
95% of the construction company "Skonto būve" belongs to Rāvis and 5% Miller, according to Firmas.lv.
