Registration and networking from 12:30.
Recorded conversations at Ridzene Hotel between 2009 and 2011 exposed potential large scale corruption schemes and trading with power and influence in Latvia involving various government officials and private business owners. Mr. Bordāns run in the last Parliamentary elections was partly based on combating exactly such illegal behavior, with his party’s campaign platform that was focused on strengthening the rule of law, fighting corruption, and reforming the insolvency process in Latvia.
Now Mr. Bordāns is pushing for an independent review of the Latvian judicial system, in order to increase transparency and decrease corruption.
At the luncheon, Mr. Bordāns will give an update to guests regarding the current status of the Latvian legal system, and the main areas of concern that he will address in his role as the Minister of Justice. Mr. Bordāns will give a short speech, which will be followed by a question & answer session, thus please get your questions ready!
