From director of education and development of the Archdiocese of Riga
SIR – Last week’s article (Catholic Life, November 13) has brought a need to clarify a couple of points. First, Dace Mozeiko is my personal assistant, and she is Latvian. Secondly, as in many countries and institutions, money has to be carefully used. That is why any funds received are processed via the Brian Faul Foundation for transparency and effective use. The banks in Latvia are also in a precarious situation and thankfully British banks are beginning to clean up their act.
The article failed to reflect the serious problem facing the school – a £30,000 gas bill that needs to be paid off by the end of November, otherwise the gas will be cut and sadly the school will close. Yes, there are other problems, but this is the most pressing.
Yours faithfully, SEÁN O’DONNELL firstname.lastname@example.org
