The Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) asks five political parties to return to the state budget 1 055 582,83 lats (1,5 million euros) in relation to violations of campaign and party financing regulation committed during the campaign for the last parliamentary elections in 2006.
On 17 April 2008 the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) submitted to the State Secretaries’ Meeting for its announcement a draft concept on financing of political parties. The concept was drafted by a working group led by KNAB. The draft concept suggests three different approaches for further strengthening of political parties’ financing system.
The Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau organises a press conference this Thursday 17 April at 13 with a view to introducing representatives of mass media with the draft concept developed by a working group on parties financing.
