On Monday, 12 February, political party Unity asked parties of the coalition to conceptually support the initiative to pay politically repressed individuals benefits worth EUR 100 during Latvia’s centenary, as confirmed by Unity’s Saeima faction.

«Politically repressed individuals have suffered from criminal regimes that had ruled Latvia in the past. But they have never lost faith in a free and independent Latvia. The invitation for the government to decide on symbolic support for the annual congress of Latvian politically repressed. Unity believes the Cabinet of Ministers should make a relevant decision in the nearest future,» comments Unity’s Saeima faction leader Hosam Abu Meri.
 

The party notes that estimates show that a single-time benefit would cost the state budget EUR 1.2 million. The party invites Finance Ministry to come up with proposals for the best sources of funding.
