The upmost shocking news for today have been that Ventspils mayor Aivars Lembergs has been taken into custody on his way to Riga / on Kuldigas road 🙂

Info on the Lembergs case: Mr. Lembergs was charged on 20th of July, 2006 with money laundering and accepting bribes (total sum 453’000 Lats). The main idea is that he has accepted “gift” of stocks of a company and has received dividends from it.

More information on this can be found in Delfi and TVNet as well as this word document taken from LETA; however, it’s in Latvian language only.
