The European Central Bank (ECB) has referred a case regarding the suspension of a national central bank Governor to the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ). The ECB is requesting a ruling on whether Latvian authorities have breached European Union law by imposing certain security measures on the Governor of Latvijas Bankas, Ilmārs Rimšēvičs, which prohibit the Governor of Latvijas Bankas from holding office at the Latvian central bank and

exercising his functions as a member of the ECB’s Governing Council. Article 14.2 of the Statute of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) and the ECB states that “a Governor may be relieved from office only if he no longer fulfils the conditions required for the performance of his duties or if he has been guilty of serious misconduct”.

In addition, the ECB has submitted a request for interim measures in order to preserve the normal functioning of its decision-making until the ECJ’s ruling on its referral. Furthermore, the ECB has requested an expedited procedure to enable a ruling on the referral as soon as possible.

The referral to the ECJ is not meant to interfere with the criminal investigation by the Latvian Anti-Corruption Authority (KNAB).
