The Special Investigation Service (SIS) announced the beginning of this investigation back in the autumn of 2012.
At the time, the SIS and prosecutor’s office announced that they were investigating a potential corruption ring in which people who were not citizens of the European Union and wanted to obtain or extend their Lithuanian residency permits paid money to lawyers and their assistants.
According to the prosecutors, bank account data proves that the government workers had received payments that influenced them to speed up the decision process. The payments were also recovered.
