    Children Rights Protection Inspectorate head Dreja to resign

    RIGA, Feb 19 (LETA) - The State Children Rights Protection Inspectorate (VBTAI) head Marianna Dreja will step down from her position on February 28, Welfare Minister Ramona Petravica (KPV LV) said in an interview with the commercial TV3 television today.

    The minister said that Dreja had been on a sick leave for several months, and an agreement of terminating a job contract with her on mutual agreement has been signed.

    Asked about the recent reports that employees of the institution had been dissatisfied with Dreja's work, the minister said that both officials had agreed not to comment on the situation in public.

    This week the minister will decide whether to announce a tender for the position or appoint a new head based on a rotation principle.

    The Latvian public television reported earlier that VBTAI employees had sent a letter to the welfare minister, the State Chancellery and the government, complaining about Dreja's work, mobbing and bossing at the inspectorate and other problems.

    Dreja took office on March 1, 2018. Before that she has worked as deputy director and then director of the Employment Agency's Legal Department, overseeing different projects.
