MPs rioting at gay march back to trial

The Court of First Instance will re-hear the case of Petras Gražulis and Kazimieras Uoka, the members of the Lithuanian Parliament (Seimas) who resisted police officers at the Baltic Pride march in Vilnius two years ago.

Having heard administrative law violation cases regarding the actions of Gražulis and Uoka at the Baltic Gay Pride march, a panel of judges of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania has decided to return the case to the Court of First Instance to rehear the request for administrative prosecution.

The Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania heard the cases of the two members of the Seimas, Gražulis and Uoka, on the basis of administrative law violation protocols issued by police officers for crossing police barriers marked with “STOP POLICE” tape and not conforming to legitimate police demands during the Pride march in Vilnius, held by the White Bridge. Vilnius County Police Headquarters appealed the decision of the Court of First Instance to dismiss Uokas’s and Gražulis’s administrative law violation cases to the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania.

The panel of judges of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania ruled that the Court of First Instance had provided a limited formal statement that the Prosecutor General had refused to initiate a pre-trial investigation regarding Gražulis and Uoka as he had not received an authorization of the competent authority to initiate criminal prosecution of the persons concerned.

The panel of judges of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania emphasized that the Court of First Instance was to cover the subject of initiating administrative prosecution of the members of the Seimas for one of the alleged acts that does not anticipate a penalty in the form of administrative detention. The panel of judges of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania stated that the Court of First Instance had applied and interpreted legal acts improperly and had not clarified all circumstances of the case, thus entering groundless judgements subject to revocation with the case being returned to the Court of First Instance for rehearing.
