The Central Criminal Police has opened a misdemeanor investigation in connection with the activities of the Põhja-Tallinn district government.

Last week, a number of IRL politicians made a formal request to begin an investigation, after excerpts of e-mails and recordings published in the daily Eesti Päevaleht indicated that the district government staff was involved in organizing anti-government protests, the newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Allegedly, several senior officials, including the District Elder Karin Tammemägi, all members of the Center Party, actively helped the organizer of the demonstrations.

A spokesman for the police, Kaarel Kuusk, confirmed the statement is being investigated but refused to comment further.

The spokesperson of the district administration, Katrin Hinrikus, called IRL’s claims slander and denied any corrupt activities.
