An inquiry by the Lithuanian government reveals the country provided the CIA with at least two detention centres on its territory. This follows media reports that Lithuanian may have been involved in the U.S. extraordinary rendition program. The parliamentary committee found that between 2002 -2005 the U.S. agency's planes were allowed to land in Lithuania. But the panel said it had found no evidence that suspects were interrogated on Lithuanian soil.
Adding to the controversy was the former Lithuanian leader Rolandas Paksas who said it was his refusal to set up secret prisons for the CIA that led to his impeachment in 2004.
And now the head of Lithuanian security has lost his job over this mess as the Lithuanian government continued its house cleaning of employees allegedly involved in allowing the CIA to host a secret prison within the Baltic state’s borders.
