    Adamsons says he has ''no clue'' what he is being accused of

    RIGA, June 10 (LETA) - MP Janis Adamsons (Harmony) said during today's emergency Saeima session on lifting his parliamentary immunity that he has ''no idea'' what he is being accused of.

    "The mafia structures in our country are at it again. I do not feel any sins behind me. Whatever the Saeima accepts, it is difficult for me to comment on what I do not even know. I have not the slightest clue of what I am being accused of," Adamsons said at the Saeima session.

    He emphasized that he had not been invited to the Saeima Mandate, Ethics and Submissions Committee meeting, where this matter was considered, nor had he read the letter from the Prosecutor General's Office.

    Adamsons was convinced that the majority of the Saeima would vote for lifting his immunity, because this was not the first time.

    "Let us see how this circus will end," he said.

    As reported, a majority of Saeima members today voted in favor of stripping MP Janis Adamson (Harmony) of immunity on suspicion of spying for Russia.

    The Prosecutor General’s Office requested the parliament’s permission to search, detain and take into custody Adamsons.

    Saeima granted the prosecution’s request by 69 votes to 5, with another four politicians abstaining.

    Adamsons works on the Saeima's Defense, Interior Affairs and Corruption Prevention Committee, but he does not have a clearance for access to classified information, LETA has found out.
