The word continues to spread

More publications are picking up the story of the repression of free speech in Latvia, among other things, making it clear that the actions of the Security Police have had a chilling effect on public discussion of economic issues. 
Here are some links (the text appears similar):

Earth Times (a news portal)

The basic story looks like it came from Deutsche Presse Agentur (DPA)

Watch this - Hi level national security boss, Jaundžeikars, even is PROUD that people will be SCARED to talk about these things.

So theese actions are regulated and acnowledged by the goverment.... not from some Security Police individuals.

So, Martins Bondars statement "You have to understand Latvia's recent history," he said. "In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the people leading the singing revolution were journalists, singers and intellectuals. They still enjoy very high, unconditional credibility in society.” is telling, especially the use of the word unconditional. Once good enough to free the state they are now to be controlled by the banks through the states secret services.

“Bankers own the earth; take it away from them but leave them with the power to create credit; and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again... If you want to be slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers control money and control credit.”
- Sir Josiah Stamp, Director, Bank of England, 1940.
