The family of Martins Bunkus expresses their gratitude and trust in the State Police
“Today, on behalf of the family, I would like to thank both the State Police for their professional work and the people who have not been indifferent these past four years.
We express our clear confidence in the investigation carried out by the State Police and we express our gratitude for the diligent, persistent and hard work carried out by the State Police in leading the investigation to a result.
The police have undergone significant changes in recent years. Of particular note is the change of the management of the State Police, which has given confidence that the investigation of the crime will not be neglected, police work will not be affected and the investigation will be carried out until the crime is solved. In this context, we would also like to commend all the officials and politicians of the time who had the courage to break the usual order of the police management.
Marking the fourth anniversary of Martin’s death is no relief, but it is rather different knowing that during the investigation police have succeeded in unravelling the chain of those involved in the murder of my brother. We cannot rule out the possibility that the criminals will resist and obstruct the investigation in the hope of escaping punishment. We also assume that there will be deliberate attempts to delay the process, to spread false and misleading information, and to do everything possible to divert suspicion from the criminals themselves and turn it against the false perpetrators.
Therefore, we would like to encourage the Latvian public not to be indifferent, to follow the progress of the murder case of Martins Bunkus, as well as to respond to the call of the police to cooperate and provide information in the investigation of the murder of Martins Bunkus,”
says Kristaps Bunkus, brother of the murdered attorney at law Martins Bunkus.
The murder case of Martins Bunkus is still ongoing. There is still a way to go before the perpetrators receive a fair punishment in accordance with the law. Only in this manner can it be possible to build confidence that Latvia is a country governed by the rule of law, that crime is not tolerated here and that the public can feel secure in knowing that all are equal before the law and that the guilty will always receive a just punishment for their crimes.
