To Citizen Silmale, Austra Arvidovna
I hereby inform you that on the basis of Article 198, para. 2, of the Latvian Code of Criminal Procedure  criminal proceedings against Silmale Maya Arvidovna, born 1924, have been discontinued by the Procuracy of the Latvian SSR. The measure of restraint applied in her case – an undertaking not to leave the city – was lifted on 15 April 1971, since Silmale M.A. has been judged by an in-patient forensic-psychiatric commission to be of unsound mind and her case is not referable to the courts for the imposition of compulsory treatment.
E Kakitis,  lawyer first class,
investigator of the Latvian SSR Procuracy for especially important cases.
