The Human Rights Monitoring Union of Lithuania and the Signatory of Independance Act of Lithuania Mr. Zigmas Vaišvila have requested the President of the Republic of Lithuania Mrs. Dalia Grybauskaitė and the Prosecutor General Mr. Evaldas Pašilis deprivation of three Judges of Šiauliai Regional Court of their office and the innitiation of pre-trial investigation.

The participant of the action in Daukantas square in Vilnius near President`s Palace „For Justice in Lithuania„ – the Human Rights Monitoring Union of Lithuania – has delivered the following proof in writing. The Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius in his letter dated 05 May 2017 No. G-1495 adressed to the Supreme Court of Lithuania has confirmed the following facts :

a) The criminal case No. 1A-402-309/2015 was heard at Šiauliai Regional Court by the Judges Zigmas Kavaliauskas, Raimundas Jurgaitis and Boleslovas Kalainis.

b) The Judge Vidmantas Mylė who has signed the judgement in criminal case No. 1A-402-309/2015 has not taken part in the proceedings of this criminal case;

c) The President of a Chamber of three Judges and the designated Judge-Rapporteur Zigmas Kavaliauskas was discussing the judgement in the criminal case No. 1A-402-309/2015 with the Judge Vidmantas Mylė who wasn`t the member of a Chamber of three Judges who were hearing this case;

d) the Judge Vidmantas Mylė who wasn`t the member of a Chamber of three Judges who were hearing this case „new the circumstances of this case, therefore he negligently signed the judgement in which the accused persons were acquitted„;

Thus, the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius in his letter dated 05 May 2017 No. G-1495 confirmed that in the protocols of hearings in the criminal case No. 1A-402-309/2015 on 05 November 2015 and 16 th December 2015 is intentionally falsly recorded that in the hearings of the case has taken part the Judge V. Mylė who was not assigned to hear this case and who had no right to discuss the judgement`s options of the case which hadn`t been heard by him. The Judge V. Mylė had no right to take part in the consultations and voting on the judgement of a Chamber of three Judges led by the President of a Chamber of three Judges and the designated Judge-Rapporteur Zigmas Kavaliauskas. The Judge V. Mylė had no right to „negligently signed the judgement dated 12 th December 2017 of Šiauliai Regional Court in which the accused persons were acquitted„.

In the view of the reporters, the acts commited by the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius and the Judges Zigmas Kavaliauskas, Vidmantas Mylė are not only an obvious breach of The Code of Ethics for Lithuanian Judges, Law on Courts, Criminal Processual Code and the Constitution of Lithuania which are beeing concealed by the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius, but also obvious possibly criminal acts. Thus, the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court became the associate of possibly criminal acts.

These possibly criminal acts have been carried out and acknowledged openly. They are incompatible with the duties and honnor of the Judge, the functions entrusted to the Judges by the state to implement the justice in the name of the state. Not exercising the responsibilities, misuse of them, the falsifying of Cout`s documents, concealing of possibly criminal acts carried out by the Judges Zigmas Kavaliauskas and Vidmantas Mylė means the discreditation of the name of the Judge and of the justice process.

In regard to these obvious facts which were confirmed in writing by the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius the Human Rights Monitoring Union of Lithuania and the Signatory of Independance Act of Lithuania Mr. Zigmas Vaišvila request:

1. the President of the Republic of Lithuania – to initiate a procedure of deprivation of the office against the Chairman of Šiauliai Regional Court Mr. Vytautas Kursevičius and the Judges Mr. Zigmas Kavaliauskas, Mr. Vidmantas Mylė.

2. the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Lithuania – to initiate a pre-trial investigation against the above mentioned Judges because of their possible criminality.
