Amid the political scandal caused by the leaked private conversations between leading politicians, transparency NGO Delna has urged Latvian President Raimonds Vējonis and Prime Minister Māris Kučinskis to take responsibility for the progress of the scandal involving their political associates.
 

In a letter to Kučinskis, sent on Monday, July 10, Delna has reminded of senior Latvian officials mentioned in the leaked Rīdzene hotel conversations – Minister of Agriculture Jānis Dūklavs and Minister of Transport Uldis Augulis – and their meeting with Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Arkady Dvorkovich, in August, 2016.
 

«The [Latvian] Foreign Ministry was not notified beforehand on the meeting and the Prime Minister failed to provide information to Delna, why was the meeting held in secrecy, what were the issues discussed and what agreements were reached,» Delna noted.
 

The organization has also urged Māris Kučinskis to demand the resignation of Dūklavs and Augulis.
 

Delna, which is the Latvian branch of the anti-corruption organisation Transparency International, standing for openness, rule of law and democracy, has called on President Vējonis to ask during the sitting of the National Security Council for constructive actions from heads of investigative bodies Prosecutor General’s Office and the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau.
