The Ministry of the Interior has launched an investigation which aims to determine the circumstances of the incident between MP Petras Gražulis and the police officers that took place on 27 July during the Baltic Pride (March for Equality) parade in Vilnius, writes www.delfi.lt.

The Ministry’s press release states that the results of this investigation will determine whether the police service inspection should be initiated.

The investigation, which aims to clarify the circumstances of the incident, was launched after the leader of the ‘Order and Justice’ party Rolandas Paksas addressed the Minister of the Interior D. A. Barakauskas.

It will also determine whether the actions of the police have signs of service ethics’ breach.

DELFI reminds that Petras Gražulis was fined 2,000 litas for his behaviour during the gay pride parade.

Apart from the fine, two protocols recording violations of the civil law were issued; for resisting the police and refusing to obey their orders. The latter may result not only in a fine, but may lead to 30 days in prison. The MP could be persecuted only in case the Seimas decides to lift his legal immunity status.
