 RIGA, Dec 6 - This morning, Security Police arrived at the residence of former National Bolshevik and leader of the party For Native Language Vladimir Linderman, he himself wrote on his ''Facebook'' profile.
The Russian rights activist said that he attempted not let the Security Police officers into his residence. At the moment, it is not known whether the officers were successful, but Lindermans' phone has been switched off.
It is possible that the Security Police are also ''visiting'' some of Lindermans' associates.
Linderman has organized and participated in several demonstrations over the past years. The Latvian Prosecutor General's Office issued an international manhunt for Linderman, who was suspected of attempting to violently overthrow the government of Latvia in order to change the political system and possession of TNT. He hid in Russia for several years, but was detained and eventually deported back to Latvia.
Later, he was put on trial in Latvia for possession of weapons and explosives, but was cleared of these charges.
Last year, Lindermans' association gathered the necessary number of signatures to call a referendum on making Russian a second state language, but the referendum was defeated.
