The Security Police of Latvia have launched the proceedings over the violation of the EU ban on providing services that are directly related to tourism in Crimea and Sevastopol, reported Delfi.

According to the Department, they have collected enough evidence to start criminal proceedings against a natural person over an intentional violation of regulations governing the use of sanctions in Latvia, which have been set by the EU legislation and other international organizations.

June, 17 last year, the Security Police carried out court-ordered searches of two companies that provided travel tours in Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

Earlier, a representative of the travel agency told that four tours had been sold in May and June, and that the company was not aware of the ban on tours to Crimea.
