Police to probe CEO statements on possible interference in RB Rail activity

NordenBladet – The Economic Crime Department of the Latvian State Police has launched a probe into recent statements made by Baiba Rubesa, CEO of the Baltic countries’ joint venture RB Rail, regarding interference in the company’s activity and shareholders’ conflict of interest.

After the probe is complete, the police will decide if there are substantial enough grounds for opening a criminal case, State Police spokesperson Gita Gžibovska said.

As previously reported, the Estonian and Lithuanian shareholders of RB Rail on Feb. 1 expressed no confidence in Rubesa; Latvian representative Andris Linužs, head of Eiropas Dzelzceļa līnijas, abstained from the vote. The matter will be discussed by the company’s supervisory board at its next scheduled meeting on March 22.

Following the censure motion, Rubesa said that some supervisory board members have a conflict of interests, citing that they make decisions while simultaneously serving in two positions.
