Vilnius County Prosecutor‘s Office (Chief Mr. Ramutis Jancevicius) challenges a legal system in Lithuania


Prokuroro Ramučio Jancevičiaus prokuratūra pareiškė nepagarbą teismui ir žmogaus teisėms



On the 13th of July, 2016, Mr.Zigmantas Segzda lodged a complaint to the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Lithuania Mr. Evaldas Pasilis. Mr.Zigmantas Segzda believes that the following prosecutors of Vilnius County Prosecutor‘s Office violated principles of  the Prosecutors‘ Code of Lithuanian Republic: Chief prosecutor Mr. Ramutis Jancevicius, prosecutor Mr. Gediminas Bernotavicius, prosecutor Mr. Vilius Paulauskas and prosecutor Mr. Ricardas Kubilius.

In September, 2015, a public prosecutor Mr. Ricardas Kubilius has taken control over the pre-trial investigation, case No. 57-1-0699-14. The party concerned in this case is Ms. Sigita Jurgeleviciene, the head of the Public Procurement Office under the Government of Lithuanian Republic. It appears from the case materials, that prosecutor Mr. Vilius Paulauskas, a son of  the leader of the Labour Party, the member of Lithuanian Parliament Mr. Arturas Paulauskas, has actively protected interests of Ms. Sigita Jurgeleviciene during the pre-trial investigation.

On the 7th of July, 2016, prosecutor Mr. Ricardas Kubilius had not appeared to a public hearing at Ukmergė region District Court. A public prosecutor Mr. Julius Gelumbauskas (fromVilnius Regional Prosecutor’s Office, Seventh Division) has asked the court to postpone investigation of the case, since he has been appointed to the case No. 57-1-0699-14 only on the eve of the 7th of July, thus he was unable even to read materials of the case.

The judge of Ukmerge region District Court Mr. Rinaldas Adamonis has been astonished at sudden and unexpected replacement of a prosecutor.

It appears, that on the 16th of July, 2016, Vilnius Regional prosecutor Mr. Eugenjus Papucka had made a decision to displace the prosecutor, but his letter of appointment has been delivered to prosecutor Mr. Julius Gelumbauskas only on the 4th of July, 2016.

Mr.Zigmantas Segzda considers, that by doing this Vilnius County Prosecutor‘s Office has violated the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, Article 6:

„In the determination of his civil rights and obligations or of  any criminal charge against him, everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial tribunal established by law.“
