Lithuanian government to appeal ECHR ruling over CIA prison

BC, Vilniaus, 29.08.2018.Print version

The Lithuanian government has changed its position and decided to appeal against the European Court of Human Rights' ruling that the country hosted a secret CIA detention facility, informs LETA/BNS.

"We have to be consistent and stick to the position that was formed (...). We'll turn to the Grand Chamber," Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis told reporters.  


The Justice Ministry said last week that Lithuania would not appeal the ruling as there was no legal chance of changing it.
