The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) plans to study attempts to influence Latvian Television's (LTV) news service.

In a letter to Delna organization, the Latvian branch of Transparency International, EBU Secretary General Jean Reveillon wrote, "I shall be in touch with the Director General of LTV, Mr. Janis Holsteins, to see if the EBU can be of any assistance in this situation."

Earlier this month, Delna sent letters to international journalist organizations, with references to "signs of political influence on the News Service."
