Grevcova did not respond to the sent summons, neither did the forced return help, as she could not be found at her place of residence, therefore this week the person was declared wanted, the prosecutor’s office stated.

Despite the search announcement, Grevcova is still active on social networks. Also, the ex-deputy from the list of “Union of Young Latvians” has been applied as the second number for the European Parliament elections scheduled for summer.

The woman was charged under two articles of the Criminal Law, namely for justifying war crimes and inciting national hatred. Imprisonment for up to five years, probation supervision, community service, and a fine can be applied for such offenses.

The investigation was carried out by the State Security Service (VDD) before the case was handed over to the prosecutor’s office.

CONTEXT:

After visiting the Latvian Occupation Museum, a now-deleted video was posted on Grevcova’s TikTok profile, in which the MP said in Russian that she had come to the “so-called Occupation Museum”, where “the facts do not match” and that the guide was telling “parallel, fictional history”.

“Let me remind you – the name of the museum is the Museum of Occupation. This is how we live. We looked at all the exhibits, and we realized – hey, how we are being fooled, how we are being fooled… If I already thought that we have propaganda, then, going through for this museum, you understand what it is – real propaganda,” Grevcova said in her video.

After Grevtsova’s statements, the member of the Saeima Edmunds Jurēvics from “Jaunās Vienotības” asked to start criminal proceedings, saying that the deputy has violated all red lines.

The State Security Service (VDD) started an investigation in the second half of January 2023, but on January 30, the State Security Service decided to initiate a criminal trial for the public glorification of genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes against peace and war crimes against the Republic of Latvia and its inhabitants, carried out by the USSR and Nazi Germany. denial, justification or gross disparagement.

In the middle of February this year, Grevcova lost her mandate as a member of the Saeima after the court found her guilty of providing false information to the Central Election Commission.
