In this photo, Liberal Movement chairman Eligijus Masiulis faces questions from reporters on the Special Investigation Service's (STT) investigation into allegations that he accepted a bribe of €100,000 from the MG Baltic business group.

Though he has claimed innocence, Masiulis has stepped down as chairman of the Liberal Movement and has withdrawn his candidacy for the Seimas.

Commentators have applauded his decisive action, though the uestion of whether or not he did indeed accept such a bribe still remains, casting a long shadow over him and the as-of-yet-unsullied Liberal Movement.
