The Council for the Judiciary appointed Alla Silova, the judge of Latgale regional court, to the office of the Chair of Judicial Panel of Civil Cases and, at the same time, the deputy Chair of this court, for the term of five years.

Alla Silovai has held an office of a judge for 21 years, and for 19 years from among them she has worked in Latgale regional court. Since October 2015, when the former Chair of the Judicial Panel of Civil Cases retired, Alla Silova has discharged duties of the Chair of the panel.  

The Council for the Judiciary has also adopted decisions on transfer of four judges to another court of the same instance. Liga Baltmane-Zepa, the judge of Aizkraukle district court, is transferred to Jekabpils district court; Maira Grike, the judge of Riga city Ziemelu district court – to Jelgava court; Inga Pujate, the judge of Riga city Kurzeme district court – to Riga city Vidzeme suburb court, and Ineta Skutane, the judge of Riga city Zemgale suburb court – to the Land Registry Office of Riga city Vidzeme suburb court.

Judges expressed wish to be transferred to vacant offices of judges in other courts, so that place of work would be closer to place of residence.

The Council for the Judiciary adopted the decision at the sitting of 21 March. See information about all issues reviewed at the sitting here
