Abstained from the Parliamentary Vote of 26 May 2011 on Lifting the Immunity against the Search in the Place of Residence of Ainārs Šlesers
As a part of an extensive criminal process in May 2011 the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) addressed the Members of the 10th Parliament (MPs) and pleaded to lift the immunity and carry out search of the place of residence of the MP Ainārs Šlesers representing party For Good Latvia (PLL). Criminal process was initiated against corruptive offences committed by several officials of state owned companies. It was understood from the information provided by KNAB that A.Šlesers (PLL) was in the focus of the case, and that this case was connected to his indirect ownership in several enterprises. The majority of the Parliament did not support the plea of KNAB.
The MP of the 10th Parliament B.Cilevičs abstained from the vote on lifting the immunity of A.Šlesers, thus joining the number of MPs, who denied KNAB the right to carry out operational activity against A.Šlesers. The decision of the Parliament denying KNAB to carry out the search in the premises of A.Šlesers as a part of criminal proceedings was the main motive of the Parliaments’ dissolution initiated by the President of Latvia and supported by the electorate in the referendum of 23 July 2011.
