The great granddaughter of Kristaps Valters, the first Chief Justice of the Senate, visits Latvia

The centenary of the Senate of Latvia has left lasting historical traces not only in the judicial system of Latvia, but also in the families of senators. Thanks to information available on the website of the Supreme Court about the planting of a memorial oak in honour of Kristaps Valters, first Chief Justice of the Senate, his great granddaughter Christine Valters Paintner learned about her great grandfather's role in the history of Latvia. She also learned that neither the Supreme Court nor the Senator’s hometown Kuldiga has any information about descendants of Kristaps Valters, so she contacted us and came to Latvia.
