first_imgThe State Revenue Service (SRS) has revealed the payment of envelopes in large amounts in the football club “Ventspils”. Therefore, criminal proceedings have been initiated and several searches have been carried out in the premises and places of residence related to the football club “Ventspils”.TV3 reported that the status of the person against whom criminal proceedings had been instituted in this case was attributed to similar crimes in Moldova, the president of the Ventspils football club Shishhanov, former club director Andrei Butrik, club manager Nikolai Djakkin and finance director Sergei Usa.Earlier, there had been rumors that Šišhanovs had earned a place on the Latvian state blacklist for these and other activities. This information has now been confirmed to Girgen by sportacentrs.com.Earlier, the portal also talked to Shishhanov himself, who said that he was included in the list because Girgen wanted it. This happened shortly after the presidential elections of the Latvian Football Federation (LFF).“This allegation that the residence permit was revoked on personal grounds does not correspond to the law or the actual circumstances,” the interior minister said in a conversation with the portal. “Here we have to look at Article 61 of the Immigration Act, which explains the procedure for including foreigners in the so-called black list. This is done on the basis of the opinions of the security services, and specific cases are discussed there.”The fact that someone is included in this blacklist is not a decision of the Minister of the Interior, but it is basically the opinion of a state institution, Ģirgens emphasized. “Thus, the prohibition is not based on an opinion, but facts obtained by the State Security Service or other competent authorities on the circumstances that give rise to the opinion that a foreigner poses a threat to national security. Detailed justification and statement of facts can be found in a decision Minister.Girgens emphasized that Shishhanov has the right to appeal the decision if he considers that it was made unreasonably.“He has the right to have the decision published in full, to be judged on what is and what is not, to have a view of his personality from a number of angles, including what is seen by the security services. in accordance with the law of the decision, “added Gürgens, who failed to gain the trust of LFF members in the recent presidential election.The Minister of the Interior also said that Optibet is still engaged in illegal activities in the Latvian Football Super League. Girgen pointed out that teams are still called upon to take fictitious actions in order to benefit from betting players. He stressed that the State Police has been given a task to combat this “disease”.Even before the beginning of this season, its captain Jevgenijs Kazačoks and his teammate Nikita Kolesov reported on “envelope salaries” in the Ventspils team.Earlier, the television channel “TV3” reported that the president of “Ventspils” club Shishhanov in Moldova had been charged with tax evasion in an organized group. According to the investigators, Shishhanov regularly paid salaries in envelopes, as well as double-entry bookkeeping. He also funded other Moldovan teams, but for several years while a Russian businessman was operating in the country, he was also suspected of matched matches, and the possibility that the Moldovan Football Federation was also involved in this illegal deal cannot be ruled out.At the beginning of May, Ventspils City Council decided to auction the shares of SIA Futbola kluba “Ventspils” based on information about illegal activities in the football team.“Ventspils” takes the fourth place in the Latvian championship after 16 game rounds with 23 points and on Thursday will already play the first round of the UEFA European League qualification against Tiraspol “Dinamo-Auto” from Moldova.Last year, “Riga” was crowned Latvian champion, but RFS won its first trophy in the history of the club, which won the national cup.last_img
