Medical workers and three others detained in Latvia for fictive Covid-19 vaccination

Latvian State Police have detained a group of four people, including one medical worker, for fictive Covid-19 vaccination.
Latvian State Police Economic Crimes Enforcement Unit (ENAP) has identified another healthcare institution in Latvia in which residents were able to receive fictive Covid-19 vaccination. A group of four was detained this week in cooperation with a Special Operations Battalion: a 1962-born woman and two 1989-born women, as well as a 1969-born man, as confirmed by State Police.
Among the detainees is one medical worker and one person who received fictive vaccination.
Five searches were performed and potentially illegally acquired money (USD 9 000 and more than EUR 6 000) was confiscated.
Three detainees, medical worker included, are in police custody. Soon authorities will decide on security measures.
One person was applied with a security measure not associated with deprivation of freedom.
Police have commenced a criminal procedure over bribery committed in a group following a prior agreement.
Police offer no comments regarding the medical institution at which fictive vaccination activities were found. It is also unknown if this particular criminal procedure is related to previous reports of allegedly vaccinated people being admitted to P.Stradins Clinical University hospital and Vidzeme Hospital only to find out they weren’t vaccinated.
Police urge people who have information regarding fake vaccination or people who have undergone fake vaccination to report it to the police. Persons providing such services to residents are also urged to turn themselves in and cooperate.
Depending on the situation, these persons may be relieved of criminal liability.
