Expert mission Latvia
Six experts, including from the Council of Europe, will be in Latvia providing customised on-site technical expertise to the main national stakeholders in the fight against sports manipulations. This includes 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 is based on information collected via earlier phases of the project (questionnaires, regional seminar, study visit, country reports) and exchanges with Latvian authorities. The visit will discuss the recent legislation criminalising sports manipulations and will culminate in a meeting of stakeholders with the view of establishing a national platform to combat the phenomenon.
