The speaker of the Lithuanian parliament, Viktoras Muntianas has urged people to hand over any materials related to collaboration with Soviet repressive structures to the Lustration Commission. 'It would do us good to find ways to encourage those who possess various documents to deliver them to where they belong. We must find a way to encourage people to file every thing they have to the appropriate state institutions as soon as possible,' Muntianas told Ziniu Radijas on Wednesday. In his words, while in private hands, information of this kind is a threat to the healthy existence of society and offers an opportunity to indulge in the political blackmail of certain individuals.
