The court announced the release of Catholic priest Krišjānis Dambergs, who was on trial for possible sexual violence against a child.

Damberg’s bail was changed and he was released from custody. It is forbidden to approach certain people.

The criminal police, the Roman Catholic Church’s Riga St. It has already been reported that the Albert congregation arrested the dean in April for alleged sexual violence against a minor. The priest had previously been detained as a security measure, but that changed on May 8 and Dambergs was released.

This is not the only case in Latvia in which priests have been accused of sexual offences in recent years. Currently, the priest of the Rēzekne-Aglona diocese, Pāvels Zeiļa, is accused of committing a sexual offense with another man and plans to continue his trial in the Riga city court at 10:00 am on 18 August.

According to the indictment, criminal offenses were committed between 2017 and 2018.

Last summer, Radio Latvijas reported that the former pastor of the Talsi Baptist Church, who a few years ago was also the head of the social work day center in the Talsi area, may have been arrested on suspicion of a sexual offense in the Talsi area.
