Dūklavs came into disrepute during the Hotel Rīdzene leaks scandal in 2017, during which transcripts of secretly recorded talks between Aivars Lembergs, Andris Šķēle, Ainārs Šlesers and other individuals at the Hotel Rīdzene were published by the Ir magazine. The transcripts of the recordings feature Dūklavs asking Ainārs Šlesers for help selling a piece of undeclared land next to the Riga Freeport for 15 million Euros.
