“Institutions basically did not provide any new information which would justify revoking the FNTT chief’s right to work with classified information,” said Giedrius Cininas, inspector general of the Interior Ministry, and added that a financial audit in relation to Jucevičius has also been carried out.

Interior Minister Saulius Skvernelis does not oppose the inquiry conclusions.

“I am forced to abide by laws and I do not see any other alternative,” he said.

Information collected during the Interior Ministry’s investigation has been given to the Special Investigation Service (STT).

As reported, Interior Minister Skvernelis had ordered to carry out an official inquiry as regards the director of the FNTT over his suitability to hold office and alleged corruption ties. The director was suspected of having demanded a large bribe, but allegations were retracted due to lack of evidence. Nonetheless, an official inquiry was launched over the director’s suitability for the office.
