WHY WE EXIST AND WHAT WE SEEK?

Reduction of the spread of corruption is a common task of the Lithuanian state authorities and the public at large. STT plays a facilitator’s role in putting together anti-corruption activities into a consistent and streamlined system.
MISSION is to reduce corruption as a threat to human rights and freedoms, the principles of the rule of law and economic development.

STT strategic goal is to reduce and control corruption in the country.
STT work strands:
- Criminal prosecution for corruption-related criminal acts.

- Anti-corruption education and awareness-raising.
- Swift and thorough detection of corruption offences.
- Detection and elimination of causes and pre-conditions for corruption.
- Building zero tolerance of corruption and increasing trust in the agency.
STT programme. The fight against corruption crimes and offences, other types of crimes as well as prevention of corruption is continuous and long-term task.
The implementation of the programme involves performance of the tasks provided for in the Law on STT, i.e. protecting and defending the person, society and the state from corruption, prevention and detection of corruption.
This programme is linked to the National Anti-Corruption Programme for 2011–2014 and its Implementation Plan and the draft National Anti-Corruption Programme for 2015-2025 which see corruption as a threat to a political system, civil society and national security. As a result, they provide for the measures underpinned by a streamlined and efficient anti-corruption policy.
