The LNK TV station reported that according to its sources the Lithuania’s Parliamentary National Security and Defence Committee was informed today about the secret CIA prisons in Lithuania. The Committee is investigating allegations made by the US ABC TV network about alleged CIA prisons in Lithuania. The Committee is questioning various officers and former officers who could have had anything to do with the CIA facility in Lithuania. The ABC TV network claims that the secret CIA prisons were stationed in Lithuania from 2004 for few years.
The LNK news stated that the former State Security Department employees admitted that such a secret CIA prison existed in Lithuania. Further more, they provided the Committee with the code name of the operation used to transport the terrorist suspects to Lithuania.
According to the LNK news report some of the State Security Department’s employees acted on they own accord and will be summoned for questioning to the Parliamentary Committee again, since it is obvious that they lied to the Committee during the previous questioning.
All highest Lithuanian officials from the President to the Army chief denied of having anything to do with the secret CIA prisons and maintained that they have not heard anything about their existence.
Head of the Committee Arvydas Anušauskas has declined to comment and informed the media that the Committee will continue questioning another half of the relevant officials. The head of the Committee stated that this investigation should be completed by this Christmas.
