Dzintars Zakis will repurchase his car from the company

Alla Petrova, BC, Riga, 11.06.2012.Print version
Unity's Saeima leader Dzintars Zakis told LETA today that over the weekend he met with management at his company Datoru centrs Ltd. where he agreed to repurchase his new "Volvo XC60" SUV, thereby "resolving moral-ethical issues."

By repurchasing the car from the company, Zakis will have to pay the value-added tax (VAT) – the root of the scandal.

 

The politician admitted that he now regrets that purchasing the car "created such a situation."

 

Lolita Cigane, the Unity Saeima group's deputy chairman, informed LETA that this solution was discussed previously at a group meeting, and Zakis' colleagues had insisted that he take responsibility and pay the VAT in question. Cigane finds the said solution acceptable.

 

This matter will be reviewed again Wednesday at the Unity MPs' meeting, she added.
