The Interim Commission, led by Agnė Širinskienė, a farmer agnė Širinskienė, who was unable to investigate the alleged unlawful influence, did not receive the information requested by another State initiator, Vytauto Bako, the National Security and Defense Committee (NSGK).
"We received a response from the NLGC that they could not even submit a list of documents they had. In their opinion, this is the secret of the state, even though we requested numbers, dates and names", – A. Širinskienė told journalists in Seimas on Wednesday.
She asked whether the statement of the NSGK on State Secrets was reasonable and expected to receive data from the State Security Service (SSD).
"In the Commission we said that the law does not state the mystery of the state that the date or number of the document (to be classified – BNS)," said A. Širinskienė.
The Commission, headed by A. Širinskiene, dealt with the NSGK on 29 October, stating that "the parliamentary inquiry increased the need for access to all public, non-public and secret information held by the National Security and Defense Committee" in its parliamentary investigation.
As soon as possible, it requested the submission of a list of all non-public and confidential inquiries of the various institutions requested by the departments, indicating the names of the authorities that they submitted, the dates of the documents, the registration numbers, the names of the documents and the confidentiality label.
On Wednesday, the NSGK decided not to forward to the commission A. Širinskienė any information.
"For speculation, the work of the special services must be prevented and done in our committee," said Conservative Arvydas Anušauskas.
In his opinion, it is clear that the new study is aimed at tackling political opponents.
Almost all members of the NSGK, including President V. Bakaso, voted in favor of submitting information to the Interim Commission of Inquiry.
Earlier in the social network Facebook account, A. Shirinskiene called the investigation an unprecedented incident of interference with intelligence and police authorities.
"For this information we will refer to the SSD and the list that we should obtain from NSGK, we would think that we will receive the Ministry of Security," A. Širinskienė said on Wednesday.
In the past, the Commission, led by the Information Commission, contacted the SSD and the Special Investigation Service (STT). There was no material from one institution yet.
"The STT did not receive any letter because there are no deadlines. The state of the ENS is that now the Seimas Ombudsman who received the complaint of R. Kurlianskis (former MG Baltica-BNS) is investigating whether the documents were lawfully filed by the NSGK. we are unable to submit SSD documents because there is a very active Ombudsman Seimas, "said A. Širinskienė.
The head of the Commission argued that he can not yet say whether this is being led by the head of the investigation. According to politicians, it will depend on the length of Seimas's Ombudsman and whether Parliament will extend the investigation by 2018.
"If in fact there will be such a period of investigation that will hinder work, the commission will decide and ask for an extension of the investigation period," said A. Širinskienė.
Yesterday, the members of the temporary commission of inquiry learned to work with classified information.
At the end of September, Seimas set up a commission to explain the alleged unlawful influence of stakeholders or their groups, the impact of the electoral process, the formation of coalitions, the work of parliamentary groups, individual politicians, activities and financing of political parties and public movements, legislative procedures, state-owned enterprises, institutions, the election of members of the supervisory authorities.
It is also proposed to find out what information law enforcement authorities and intelligence agencies have provided to the competent authorities, how it responded.
A. Širinskienė proposes to extend the investigation from 2008 to 2018, including the conservative referral to the Constitutional Court (KZ) on pension funds, and to add any unlawful influence on the main board for administrative ethics.
Researchers must submit their findings by 1 May of the following year. Then, a presidential campaign for the European Parliament will take place.
Seven of the 12 members of the commission are representatives of the peasant population. Two members of the social service were also appointed, one "caregiver", a liberator and a representative of electoral activity – a Christian union of families of the Lithuanian regiment.
Conservatives and social democrats refused to attend the commission.
A new study was launched by Ramūnas Karbauskis, President of the Lithuanian Peasant and Green Union. According to him, a previous study by the NSGK, in essence, showed that it should continue for the same reasons.
In early June parliament approved the conclusions of the parliamentary inquiry into the NSGK. They are endangering the operation of the Russian energy company "Rosatom" and the Lithuanian "MG Baltic" concern as a state system and national security.
Farmers' leader: V. Beck's behavior – incomprehensible
Ramūnas Karbauskis, head of the ruling peasant government, says he is not aware of the behavior of Seitas Vytautas Bakas, chairman of the National Security and Defense Committee, but the politician will remain in the group.
He spoke this way when the National Security and Defense Committee (NSGK), led by Mr. Baks, denied any unlawful information to the politically-minded agricultural commission Agnė Širinskienė.
"I do not understand his position, I read his publications, his statements, and I was surprised by my colleagues in the group," said a journalist following the meeting of the group, R. Karbauskis.
However, he added that "we never leave anything that would be unlike the opinion of the group".
A. The Širinskienė Commission requested a list of all non-public and confidential inquiries of the various institutions requested by the services, indicating the names of the bodies they provided, the dates of documents, registration numbers, document names and confidentiality.
According to the peasant leader, the NSGK, on the initiative of Mr Bac, refused to provide this information on the fact that the Parliament disagrees with the investigation itself.
In the summer, Seimas confirmed the findings of a study on his policy of business impact by V. Bak, but the country did not approve a new study.
R. Karbauskis argued that, despite Bach's opinion, he should not have decided which commission was suitable for research, which was not the case.
"In total, this commission has all the rights and doubts about the rights of this commission to question the Seimas decision," the head of the farm said.
Mr Karbauskis also argued that he agreed with Bach's view that in the future, the question could be posed about the replacement of a member of the parliamentary committee, Arturas Skardis, with the Commission for Supervision of the Commission and another Seimas member.
According to politicians, such a decision would "benefit the commission itself", but stressed that Mr. Skardžius was not charged with anybody and that he had a license to work with classified information.
The President of the Lithuanian Farm and Green Union also promised that Seimas would accept the changes proposed by the Backstreet Commission.
"I can swear if it is necessary for the laws in the Sejm. If the government does not do this, we will do it", – said R. Karbauskis.
According to A. Širinskienė, the decision of the NSGK to not provide information somewhat slowed down the work of its commission.
Nevertheless, the commission promises to receive the necessary information from the state security service.
