Expert mission to Latvia

Six experts, including from the Council of Europe, were in Latvia providing customised on-site technical expertise to the main national stakeholders in the fight against sports manipulations. This included the Latvian Ministry for Education and Sport, the Ministry of Justice, the main sports federations, the Latvian police authorities and the national betting authority and operators. Assistance was based on information collected via earlier phases of the project (questionnaires, regional seminar, study visit, country reports) and exchanges with Latvian authorities. The visit discussed the recent legislation criminalising sports manipulations and culminated in a meeting of stakeholders with the view of establishing a national platform to combat the phenomenon.
