The criminal investigation, which is taking place in Latvia, deals with the purchase of an offshore drilling rig, which has now made history under the nickname of “Boyko tower.” The reason for Latvia to investigate the case is because this is the nation where false owners of the fictitious firm Highway Investments Processing LLP live and work (but actually, they are homeless bums, according to various investigations).
