AIVARS LEMBERGS: ONE OF LATVIA’S RICHEST MEN IS JAILED FOR BRIBERY AND MONEY LAUNDERING

On 23 February, Euronews reported that Aivars Lembergs, 67, the mayor of the city of Ventspils since 1988, has been convicted by a court in Riga and sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for bribery and money laundering.  Lembergs’ son, Anrijs, and business partner, Ansis Sormulis, were also sentenced to 2 years in prison and had their assets confiscated, for being accessories.  The decision brings an end to the longest criminal trial in Latvia’s recent history, though Lembergs has said he will appeal.
