The Pub­lic Con­sul­ta­tive Coun­cil of the Lat­vian Cor­rup­tion Pre­ven­tion and Com­bat­ing Bu­reau (KNAB) will again in­clude two non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions – the Lat­vian branch of Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional, Delna, and cen­tre for pub­lic pol­icy Providus.

The two or­gan­i­sa­tions were ex­cluded from the Pub­lic Con­sul­ta­tive Coun­cil (SKP) by the pre­vi­ous head of the cor­rup­tion watch­dog, Jaroslavs Streļčenoks.

KNAB in­formed the BNN that on Thurs­day, July 6, a sit­ting of the SKP took place at the bu­reau, where mem­bers of the coun­cil agreed on fu­ture co­op­er­a­tion with the new head of KNAP Jēk­abs Straume.

The SKP agreed on the need to deepen co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the bu­reau and the pub­lic and de­cided to ad­mit Jā­nis Vol­berts from Delna and Valts Kal­niņš from Providus to the coun­cil.

In line with the KNAB SKP rules of pro­ce­dure the com­po­si­tion of the coun­cil is con­firmed by the head of the cor­rup­tion watch­dog.
