The Lithuanian governmental commission which was set up last week to investigate the causes and consequences of the recent fire at the Mazeikiu Nafta (Mazeikiai Oil) refinery is to hold its first meeting on Tuesday. The commission will be headed by Interior Minister Raimondas Sukys, and will meet at the Interior Ministry. The commission involves officials from the ministries of Environment, Economy and Finance, the State Security Department, the police and other state institutions, as well as representatives of Mazeikiu Oil. The governmental panel plans to present its conclusions on the Mazeikiai Oil fire on Nov. 30. The conclusions will determine the conclusion date of a deal with the Polish oil concern PKN Orlen on the sale of almost 31 percent of Mazeikiai Oil's shares which are currently owned by the government.
