00:00-00:28 (LV) This criminal case (against Rimshevich) is not connected with any of the credit institutions operating in Latvia. It is important to understand that no credit institution has come under our attention as a result of some illegal transactions.

00:28-00:44 (LV) As for communications from US financial institutions related to ABLV Bank or the Norvik bank management, I can say that there is no connection with this criminal case. At least by now.
