Seimas’ speaker: MPs should be safe from impact of foreign states

State Security Departament
DELFI / Tomas Vinickas

“This is the most simple introduction of threats – how unfriendly services may act through them, things people may not even realize, as the majority of the Seimas members, 60 percent, are new,” Pranckietis told Žinių Radijas news radio on Wednesday.

In his words, this is done to make sure that members of parliament realize the threats that arise from the outside and could defend themselves against them, ruling out the criticism that this was an attempt of intelligence institutions to interfere with operations of parliamentarians.

The planned training was agreed upon by the parliamentary speaker and security chief Darius Jauniškis on December 14. Topics for the training will be offered by officers of the State Security Department to give MPs a better understanding of what intelligence is and how it differs from criminal intelligence.
