PM sees 'ethical and moral' breaches in environment minister's actions

Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius says that a preliminary report from lawyers he received on Wednesday concludes that Environment Minister Kęstutis Trečiokas has not violated any laws. Still, the prime minister says he sees "ethical and moral" missteps on Trečiokas' part, without commenting on whether he will ask for the minister's resignation.
