In the case of "Lielvārde vēsts", the former mayor of Āboliņš must pay back to the state EUR 600 000 / Article / LSM.LV

Zemgale District Court in Ogre, who accepted the claim of the public prosecutor's office, declared the Lielvārde Börsel invalid and the signing of the bill, the then chairman of Lielvarde Jānis Āboliņš was ordered to recover the state price of 602.223 euro, according to the statement of the parquet of the Attorney General.

The allowance is calculated on the basis of the norms of the Civil Procedure Act. The judgment of the Court of 8 November of Abolina will also be settled on the expenses related to the trial – EUR 34.65. The same amount must be paid by Riverside HK Ltd. paid to the State of Latvia, with which Abobins has signed the deal.

Within 20 days, the decision can be appealed to the regional court of Zemgale.

Klaver decides to appeal against the court's decision. Former mayor of Lielvarde is of the opinion that the transaction has not been concluded at all. Therefore, the court can not state that it is no longer valid.

"I believe that this bill has not been signed." The signed document was a draft contract. "No document, no evidence presented in court, which could indicate that the transaction was closed. [..] If this agreement was concluded and the creditor would go to court, it would only be at that time that this claim would be considered. In essence, the claim must be rejected, which I also ask the court. But the court did not take these arguments into account and did not even reflect in the judgment, "said Abobins.

The LETA agency reports that

The State Police will continue to investigate large-scale fraud in this case.


In November 2015, the then head of the Lielvarde County Council, Aboliņš, signed a "bill" for 200 million euros only on behalf of the municipality of Lielvarde. Subsequently, the municipality appealed to the Corruption Prevention and Control Office (KNAB) and the Public Prosecutor's Office to investigate the legality of Aboliņa's actions. After almost a year of CPR, KNAB refused to initiate criminal proceedings, because there was no evidence that violations were committed with direct intention.

The prosecutor general's parquet, however, abolished the decision of the KNAB and ordered an additional check. In March last year, the prosecutor announced that criminal proceedings had been initiated about AboLine's behavior and was sent for investigation into the police department of economic crimes.
