Lithuanian border guards are starting a so-called Italian protest on Tuesday. During the action, all people and vehicle crossing the border will undergo thorough checks.

Vladimir Banel, leader of he National Association of Officers' Trade Unions, told BNS the protest would involved Medininkai, ^al2ininkai, Lavoriškės and Raigardas border checkpoints on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border.

"Border guards will thoroughly inspect documents of drivers, passengers and vehicles. Of course, nobody will be inventing new procedures, but all procedures [envisaged in the books] will be carried out. We will not be making queues artificially," he said.

The protest starts at 8 AM on Tuesday and will last until 8 AM on Thursday, July 11.

According to Banel, foreign embassies, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Association of Road Carriers and Belarus have been informed of the protest.

"We hope that our politicians will start solving our problems," Banel said.

Lithuanian officers also held a protest outside Vilnius International Airport last week, aimed at attracting the attention of visiting members of the European Commission.

The protests of statutory officers, including police officers, fire-and-rescue officers, border officers, prison guards, are aimed at persuading local authorities to provide additional funding to law enforcement, improve social guarantees for officers and launch a law enforcement reform.
