Now in the office for the protection of the Constitution (SAB) conducted a digitization database Delta on the Committee for State security (KGB) of the Soviet era. In the database there are reports of agents, and the registration card.
After two weeks, the database is scheduled to be transferred to the national archive of Latvia that it could work and scientific-research Commission investigating the activities of the KGB of the LSSR. The transfer of "de facto" became known that the new version of the electronic database will be available to the scientists in edited form: it will remove some of the information — perhaps the first and last names. But if scientists are not available all the data, the study cannot be conducted in full.
Member of the Commission of research of the Commission Kristine Arenovski is outraged by this fact: "Most historians laughs: how to be interesting to investigate, if we find out that one person "X" was found with another person "X" and agent "X" carried on person "X" head of Department "X".
Card file of agents of KGB and the database Delta of the KGB are in the premises of the Bureau for the protection of the Constitution. Scientists of the Commission to "bags of KGB" had no access since the establishment of the Commission. The security office requests to streamline access to state secrets (this would work in the office rooms) and subscribe to that special decision of the Cabinet not disclosed information of "bags of KGB". Scientists informed the Commission several times expressed its opinion: the requirements of the Bureau, it is considered unnecessary, because they (requirements) to seriously constrain scientific work.
Last year it was found a partial solution to the problem: a computer database Delta to digitize information for the national archives of Latvia, which will allow scientists to access the information outside of the Bureau for the protection of the Constitution. First there was funding problems, and later in cooperation with the Ministry of justice was allocated 40 000 euros. At the end of this year, scientists will finally be able to begin its work.
