Security Department tracked over 1,000 Lithuanian citizens last year

In all cases, the department had a court sanction “for tracking a person’s telephone and Internet communications, entering the person’s private space and examination of his documents and other items,” the department said in a report published on Monday.

“In 2014, the State Security Department carried out regional court-sanctions actions with regard to 1,884 individuals. Among them, 1,024 were citizens of the Republic of Lithuania, 816 were non-Lithuanian citizens and 26 were organizations,” reads the document.

The department said the intelligence information collected during the actions was handed over to leaders of the state.
