A mayor with troubles

Opposition members of the Vilnius city municipality have accused the Vilnius city mayor of not acting in the best interests of the city and called for his resignation. The right wing opposition factions of the city council submitted an interpellation document saying Mayor Juozas Imbrasas should be discharged from his position.


The document claimed he uses his authority and influence to work on behalf of his party, Order and Justice, and related interest groups – not solving urgent problems important for the residents of the city.

Obviously law, order and justice is what is demanded of the mayor!

Cutting defence jobs

Due to large budget cuts to the Defence Ministry, the nation’s defence system will shed 422 positions in 2009. The job cuts will include both eliminating vacant positions and dismissing or failing to extend the contracts of existing employees.

 A total of 226 professional service troops and 196 public servants and contracted employee positions have already been cut for 2009, the minister’s spokeswoman said. She said soldiers whose age requires transfer to the reserve, as well as terminating expiring labour contracts, will be laid off.

Pity people are losing their jobs but, at the same time, why to have more people working for the army and not for schools?

Human rights absent?

Following reports of worsening human rights worldwide, the Lithuanian Human Rights Monitoring Institute (HRMI) director has lambasted the country’s leadership, saying that no politicians address human rights in their policies and they do nothing to promote the issue.

“Human rights are absent in their political agenda. Very little attention is paid to it and there is a very narrow understanding of human rights in this country, therefore there are no human rights violations [recorded],” Director of the HRMI Henrikas Mickevicius told The Baltic Times.

The statements follow a report by Human Rights Watch International, which said the human rights situation worldwide is worsening.

How else can they say that this is a huge cover up?
