Over the past year, a number of proposals have been made in Seimas, which would fundamentally restrict citizens‘ access to important information about politicians and state officials, their interests, property and meetings with interest groups.

The Seimas Committee on State Administration and Local Authorities, which is headed by “Farmer” Guoda Burokienė has presented at least three legislative amendments, which in one way or another hide from the public information about politicians. One of the committee’s proposals has already been approved in Seimas, while others are due to be considered.
