2018 was an excellent year for articles about the still-continuing Latvia-EBRD fraud racket which costs society billions every year.  We counted 23 articles published by 14 publishers in 7 countries.  Unfortunately it still isn’t enough because there has been zero reaction from Latvian authorities and EBRD staff who are still pretending to be unaware of the whistleblowing against them.  Hopefully we will smash the racket in 2019! We have pdf backups of all articles in case any links go down.
