Prosecutor Alfredas Bacys, who is leading the pre-trial investigation, has refrained from providing more information as the investigation has just been launched.

Bacys confirmed that there were no suspects in the investigation.
According to the prosecutors, it is intended to complete the investigation as soon as possible, although the Criminal Code provides for a term of up to six months.
