Lithuania’s Prosecutor General Darius Valys sent a motion to the Seimas today requesting that the legal immunity of three Labour Party MPs is revoked so they can be prosecuted. In the motion, Prosecutor Valys asked for the immunity of Viktor Uspaskich, Vytautas Gapsys and Vitalija Vonzutaite to be lifted, 15minlt. reported referring to BNS.

Even though their immunities were lifted by the previous Seimas and essentially on the same grounds, charges were revised on October 26th and re-defined as fraud. A Vilnius court has been hearing their case since April of 2008.

All defendants strongly deny the charges and are suspicious about the timing of the charges.
