Blue miracles in declarations of SRS workers

Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUBlue miracles – such is the impression one gets from reading what senior investigator of State Revenue Service’s Finance Police Evija Sudmale wrote in her declaration. Based on similarities in declarations, she is also the mother of child of Finance Police spokesperson and owner of the biggest savings in this institution Jurgis Kijonieks. Nine apartments «appear» and then immediately «disappear» and in their place appear two pieces of land.

Neither SRS Director General Inara Petersone nor Sudmale wanted to comment those miracles, as reported by Pietiek portal.

According to SRS’ public database, Sudmale had only one apartment in Jelgava in 2011. However, the next year the Finance Police investigator stated in the declaration that she owned nine whole apartments in Jelgava without mentioning any transactions.

Miracles continued to appear in Sudmale’s declaration in 2013. According to her declaration, the nine apartments had disappeared without any mention of transactions. Instead the declaration now had two pieces of land. Both appeared the same way – without any mention of transactions.

Sudmale refused to provide any information to the portal regarding changes in declared properties. Petersone’s official response to the question as to any at all internal SRS inspections in regards to Sudmale’s declaration was – society has no right to know any details.

Nevertheless, the portal has learned from other sources that «miraculous changes» are related to the apartment building located on Tirgonu Street 1 in Jelgava.

Jelgavas Herald has since taken down its article «Owner demolishes dangerous building on Tirgonu Street 1». In it, Sudmale mentioned as an owner of the building that she had bought the property approximately one year ago.

After buying the property, however, it suffered fires multiple times. Finally, in 2013, the Finance Police investigator had the ruined building demolished, saying that ‘nothing will be built in its place’.

The building’s demolition answers the question in regards to the mysterious disappearance of nine apartments, but not the question about their sudden appearance. Interviewed real estate experts all said the price of a nine-apartment building with land may have cost at least EUR 15-20 thousand – an amount that should have appeared in Sudmale’s declaration.

Information stated in the land book creates the impression that Sudmale had not told the truth to Jelgavas Herald when she said she had bought the real estate property located on Tirgonu Street.

Information from the digital land book states that real estate property that consisted of 1,743 m2 piece of land and 234.9 m2 building became owned by Sudmale following the ruling of Limbazi Court in 2013 after the previous owner was declared insolvent.

Nothing is mentioned about the amount of money paid for this transaction in the land book. Although it is possible the property was bought on an auction, it still does not provide an answer to the appearance of two other pieces of land in the official’s declaration, the portal writes.
