On the 23d September, four colleagues from the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) led by Janis Roze, Acting Deputy Director, visited the Special Investigation Service (STT).
Christine Uriarte, Senior Legal Adviser of the Anti-Corruption Division of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) appreciated the efforts put by the Special Investigation Service (STT) in the process of Lithuania’s accession to the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions.
In 2014, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) achieved excellent results in the fight against fraud across Europe. OLAF completed a high number of investigations while continuing to reduce their overall duration. It issued a record number of recommendations in over five years. The Office recommended the recovery of EUR 901 million, which should progressively return to the EU budget and help fund other projects. The results reported for 2014 confirm that OLAF has become increasingly efficient over the last years, bringing tangible results for EU taxpayers.
The Head of the Central Anticorruption Bureau and the Director of the Special Investigation Service of the Republic of Lithuania signed a cooperation agreement.
