The Court of Appeal of Lithuania has annulled the decision to separate the case of the Labor Party's leader Viktor Uspaskich and ordered the party's fraudulent bookkeeping case to be heard equally with respect to all defendants.

"The panel of judges did not take into account specific case circumstances and the role of Uspaskich in the commitment of the criminal acts," Linas Šiukšta, a judge at the Court of Appeal said during Friday's hearing.

In the middle of March, Vilnius Regional Court separated Uspaskich's case after he failed to attend three hearings of the Labor Part's case due to illness.

The Labor Party is charged with failing to include more than 24 million litas (EUR 6.9m) in income and 23 million litas in spending into its books between 2004 and 2006. The Labor Party's members strongly deny the accusations, saying the case is politically-motivated. The case reached court back in 2008.
