In Latvia, a journalist was arrested for a joke about the country's special services

46
Latvian secret services arrested journalist Yuriy Alekseev, editor of the portal imhoclub.lv, which is a platform in Latvia for expressing opposition views. From the statement of Yuri's colleague - Alexander Gaponenko - about the situation:
EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! Announced the combat readiness of N1. Yura Alekseev went through a search at home, he was arrested and is in the Security Police. The phone is not responding. A lawyer is already going to him. Friends do not yet know what happened. To be ready to inform the world media about the new act of persecution of Russian activists by the Latvian secret police.



In Latvia, a journalist was arrested for a joke about the country's special services


According to the Latvian media, Yuri Alekseev was arrested after publishing a joke about the Latvian security police. If this is indeed the case, then the Latvian secret services are following the path of “Stalinist repression”, which the Latvian authorities themselves have been trying to brand since gaining so-called independence.

On the portal imhoclub.lv The information was published that after the search in the apartment of the journalist the Latvian secret services found several dozen ammunition for the Makarov pistol in him. Friends of Yuriy Alekseev point out that this is an obvious provocation of the Latvian security service, since the journalist has never had a gunshot weapons.

It is reported that after the search, computer equipment and digital information storage media were confiscated from Alekseev’s apartment.

Latvian politician and human rights activist Vladimir Linderman, who heads the party “For the mother tongue!”, Writes that the Latvian special services operate according to the same scenario. He says that earlier, during a search in his house, a TNT "was found", which he never had.

At the moment, the charges against Yuri Alekseev are not reported.

    Stalinist practice is relevant at all times! He takes from the USSR all the worst. If they had a territory, they would have already taken up resettlement of peoples. One people, the one that gave them everything!

      what does it have to do with it? let's be honest: officially arrested for patrons, and not for public activities .. for the Latvian special services - it is tantamount to any bulk in our country .. be consistent, then call bulk arrests for breaking the law Stalin's practice .. not? I think so too, violated - answer

            Have you read the article? After which the searches began, followed by the tossing of what people did not have at all!
            In Stalin’s times, with the wording “for a joke,” no one was arrested either !!

        What violated Alekseev?
        I know him as a consistent, principled and honest man, to the best of his ability, struggling with the Nazi dominance in his country. Hits are constantly being made on his site and storing ammunition in his position is utter nonsense.
        Well, our "elite" once again demonstrated its absolute weakness in protecting people who are sympathetic to Russia. Although, perhaps, she, our elite, does not care about them.

I did not claim that he was a bad person, did not claim that everything was right and that wasn’t fraud .. for this there are law enforcement agencies of the country in which he lives ..
          He drew an analogy with bulk - the same thing for Latvians .. we are not talking about the truth - everyone has their own truth ..

                Under Stalin, they said bluntly, you are an enemy of the people and you didn’t throw any cartridges. The Latvian authorities do not even have the courage to call a spade a spade. The fact that he is the "enemy" of Latvian statehood is understandable, but where did it come from? Maybe Latvians need to take a closer look at their openly fascist law on "non-citizens"? Cowardly Latvian scum, knowing that there is nothing to blame a person for all European laws (where they are), throw a different crime.

            But this is formalism. That is, everything is apparently outwardly correct, but in fact - a dummy. 1948
            Find fault with the cartridges in order not to see or hide the essence.

              as I indicated initially - “formally” .. I don’t quibble, but I’m talking about the essence just .. in any country, any opposition should 200% exclude the possibility of closing it by formal form .. okay, we’ve inflated the thread about anything .. conversation It began with the fact that a person calls the country a Stalinist heritage for actions that take place in any state, including our state .. which I did not agree with .. I did not support the Latvian authorities, moreover, in my heart FOR this Russian guy, but ! 1. I did not see anything in the actions of the Latvians that they do not do with our opposites and do the right thing 2. I believe that if we support something at home, there is nothing to blame others for it, otherwise we will not differ from them ..

      And by the way .. The Baltic states worked clearly. The oppositionist joked and sent him to jail ... But our specialists lack such "determination" .. Although this is understandable, there is no team! But the guys from SEBR were quickly twisted.

        Law enforcement agencies (special services) protect the state, the ruling class ... they have the same methods as before. They dragged on the Stalinist times, but it was cooler there than during the Inquisition, Frankish, Aglitsky and other palace squabbles or during McCarthyism ??? The dirty work of the security authorities has always been. how these authorities separated from the general masses and began to gnaw at each other.

          Correctly, but at all times they did not bother and were usually arrested in such cases for anti-state activities, or for espionage, or simply for not being reliable. Let the courts deal later. Immediately on the face of the lies of the Latvian authorities and double standards. Since, according to all European laws, Alekseev is not presented with anything. In they included the "game of a fool", with ammunition.

        You try to believe that in the USSR it was possible to jail and jokes in general most of the country, the male population is for sure !!!
        We never reached such a dope!
        The authorities are not complete d-d-d-d-s, the people need an outlet, let off steam, because in principle it does not change anything.
        Look at those noisy who suffered from the bloody regime for the "truth of the womb" ... as a rule, there is something for that, for specific crimes that have a legal assessment in the Criminal Code!
        I do not believe those vile goats ---- m, I was especially interested in, looked at documents, archives, because we had a dispute with the stubborn follower of the CPSU and with 101% liberal.
        The CPSU won with a crushing score, so I always take that fact into account !!!

    He says that earlier during a search in his house they found a TNT sword, which he never had.

    Well, the trick is known not only for special services ... burying a specific person in a barrel of feces is not a big problem now, for those who have administrative resources and money, this is usually an ordinary case.
    In the West, there is now a gap in patterns (to some extent, like ours) and the methods and methods for neutralizing objectionable people are the same.

    Well, yes-- very similar to Article 58-10 of the Criminal Code of the USSR of 1936
    Propaganda or agitation containing a call for the overthrow, undermining or weakening of Soviet power or for the commission of certain counter-revolutionary crimes, as well as the distribution, production or storage of literature of the same content entail - imprisonment for a term of not less than six months.
    The same actions during mass unrest or using religious or national prejudices of the masses, or in a military situation, or in places declared martial law: the punishment is similar to Article 58-2. (Imprisonment for a term of not less than three years, with the confiscation of all or parts of the property.)
