According to the Lietuvos Žinios daily, prosecutor Kęstutis Vagneris from the Prosecutor General's Office, representing the public interest, turned to court.
"I turned to Vilnius Regional Administrative Court as a prosecutor representing the public interest over alleged violations. I have not coordinated the matter with anyone since as a prosecutor I am an independent officer. I have not received information yet as to whether the court will accept the case for hearing," he said.
Čekelienė has served at the EUROJUST headquarters in The Hague since March 2008.
According to the Law on Secondment of Persons to International and EU Institutions or Foreign Institutions, candidates have to be selected in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In Čekelienė's case it was not done. Following her secondment, the then Prosecutor General Algimantas Valatinas only informed the ministry about it. The ministry has confirmed that, the daily writes.
Moreover, following changes in the management of Lithuania's Prosecutor General's Office, Čekelienė was reappointed despite the fact that her previous term had not ended. She was later reappointed again until 2015. Both decisions were not coordinated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the ministry was not informed about them, nor was the Ministry of the Interior which organized selection of potential candidates.
