    State Police investigate seven criminal cases on possible violations of MPC system

    RIGA, July 17 (LETA) - The State Police are investigating seven criminal cases on possible violations of the mandatory procurement component (MPC) system, the State Police's press officer Ilze Jurevica told LETA.

    Five criminal cases deal with possible fraud, one with fraud attempt, and another one with abuse of power.

    One person has the status of a suspect in these criminal cases, but the person is not a public official, said Jurevica. The police are also pressing for different coercive measures, from liquidation to confiscation of property, to be applied against various companies involved in the fraud schemes.

    Investigation is ongoing and no further information may be released as it could impede the investigation, said the police.

    The police remind that one criminal case has been forwarded to the prosecutor's office, in which employees of two companies, Rigas Energija and Latvijas Energoceltnieks, were suspected of involvement in MPC fraud schemes.

    As reported, Ieva Krapane, head of the parliamentary investigative commission on the MPC system, said earlier this week she had information that may lead to new criminal proceedings.

    Krapane has spoken to several persons connected to the MPC business environment and also seen certain documents signed by officials. She told reporters that she would forward information at her disposal to the authorities for further assessment.
