Vice-Minister delegated by AWPL on the President’s blacklist
The so-called “STT’s [Special Investigation Service of the Republic of Lithuania] blacklist” contains names of 9 vice-ministers from 5 ministries, TV3 reports.
The list includes the names of all four vice-ministers from Ministry of Agriculture – Živilė Pinskuvienė, Rytis Šatkauskas, Mindaugas Kuklierius, and the under-secretary delegated by AWPL (Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania), Leokadia Poczykowska.
The list contains also the names of the vice-minister of the interior, Algimantas Juocevičius; the vice-minister of justice, Saulius Stripeika; the vice-minister of environment, Almantas Petkus; and the vice-minister of finance, Vytautas Galvonas.
Last Monday, the President Dalia Grybauskaitė strongly implied that if the vice-ministers whose names were included on the blacklist weren’t fired, the particular government ministers would be removed from office as well.
