VDD assesses that in relation to the planned public event in Rātslaukums tomorrow, 9 February 2019, there are risks of provocations and this event can be used by radically minded persons in their interests.
In 2018 the work towards the amendments to the national legislation regarding state security institutions (Latvian Security Police (DP), the Constitution Protection Bureau (SAB), Defence Intelligence and Security Service (MIDD)) was finished. The legislative changes, which will enter into force on 1 January 2019, distinguish the service in the state security institution from other forms of service in state administration.
On December 6, 2018 DP Latvia organized a table-top exercise of the National Counterterrorism Plan (hereinafter – NCP) “Code Red 2018”.
