Last year, 34 requests for foreign legal assistance were received from Mongolia, Ukraine, the Netherlands, Russia, Greece, Poland, Spain, Germany, Estonia,
Liechtenstein, Moldova and Romania. In 2020, 37 letters rogatory were completed.
On Tuesday, KNAB chief Jēkabs Straume explained to the Defense, Home Affairs and Corruption Prevention Commission that a large number of legal aid requests are related to money laundering. When executing legal aid requests, the KNAB often finds out that Latvian citizens have also entered into corrupt relations, thus there is a reason to start an investigation already in Latvia.
To ensure that evidence is obtained and corroborated in the records of the Office
in criminal proceedings, in 2020 the KNAB prepared 28 legal aid requests for sending abroad. Most legal aid applications are prepared for transmission to the countries of the European Union.
