Region: Lithuania
Target: Lithuania’s General Prosecutor Darius Valys, Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaite
Background (Preamble):
In 2009 D. Kedys, 37, father of 5 year old Deimantele Kedytė, contacted authorities to report the sexual assault of his daughter by 3 men: Andrius Ūsas, ex-Head of the Kaunas branch of Labour Party, Jonas Furmanavičius, judge of Kaunas County Court, and a third blond-haired man Aidas. This case wasn’t being investigated until months later, when D. Kedys went public with his evidence: a video of his daughter explaining her ordeal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHMSBXcqIhU.

On October 5th, 2009, judge J.Furmanavičius and Violeta Naruševičienė (accused of helping to prostitute the girl) were found dead with gun wounds. On April 18th 2010, D. Kedys was found dead with a gun next to his body, close to a water reservoir. Official version-choking on his stomach contents due to an alcohol consumption. 

On June 13th 2010, main suspect A. Ūsas’s body was found close to a pond. Official version- drowning due to the heart failure and alcohol consumption. 

This case involves multiple deaths, cover-ups of evidence, ambiguous tactics, false accusations and deliberate misinformation by the prosecution. In addition, D.Kedys’s sister N. Venckienė is being subjected to a continuous harassment by the prosecution and smear campaigns in the press. Same tactics were also used in other famous cases i.e. VSD officer’s A. Pociūnas death.
