KAUNAS - Kaunas Mayor Andrius KupĨinskas will be the subject of a criminal probe by the national prosecutor's office, the prosecutor announced this week.

The mayor of Lithuania's second largest city  is accused of falsifying city council vote records to change disputed municipal policies.

The investigation was initiated by suspicions that the merger of two municipal hospitals, Kaunas Second Clinical Hospital and Kaunas Red Cross Hospital, was taking place even though the council voted down a proposed merger in April.
