Corruption in private sector should be regulated, says minister
Minister of Justice in Lithuania Juozas Bernatonis

Corruption in the private sector in Lithuania should not go unregulated, a member of Parliament has said. 

Chair of the Parliamentary Group For Corruption-Free Lithuania Agne Bilotaite said she had turned to Minister of Justice Juozas Bernatonis with a request for proposals on how to address the issue of regulation of corruption cases in private sector.

The calls comes after the Supreme Court in Lithuania ruled that the current construction of the criminal code is inappropriate and its section regulating corruption crimes cannot by applied to natural persons.

"At first glance the new ruling of the Supreme Court seems as if has no major consequences, however, other sections of the Criminal Code do not provide for anti-corruption regulations for private persons; as a result, corruption in the private sector in Lithuania has remained unpersecuted," says Bilotaite.

The MP said she intends to consider the proposals drafted by the Ministry of Justice in the meetings of the Parliamentary Group For Corruption-Free Lithuania and together look for the best ways to improve particular legislative acts.
