A corruption network in Lithuania's Migration Department may have issued residence permits to about 100 foreigners, prosecutors said.

"A precise number of foreigners will be established during the investigation but we suppose it's about 100 people," Vilma Mažonė of the Prosecutor General's Office told BNS on Tuesday afternoon.

Mažonė confirmed to BNS that four of the seven detained officials of the Migration Department were heads of divisions, one deputy head of a division, and two senior specialists. The individuals are suspected to have received unlawful gain from the residence permits.

"The investigation covers a period of about six months. In order not to affect the investigation, prosecutors have not revealed the countries at issue. It refers to citizens of various countries," she added.

Suspicions were also brought against two lawyers, two assistant lawyers, and two legal entities.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Special Investigation Service announced investigation of a possible corruption scheme where non-EU citizens who wanted to receive a permit to live in the Republic of Lithuania or wanted to extend such permits would pay money to lawyers and assistant lawyers who would act as intermediaries.
