Vilniaus Prekyba is the country's biggest business group and controls supermarket chain Maxima and a range of other retail chains.

Sources told BNS that the raid was part of a suspected corruption case involving politicians and the MG Baltic group.

BNS Lithuania quoted sources saying that Diana Dominiene, the director, was being questioned by the Special Investigation Service (STT) on Tuesday.

The raids were said to be related to a pre-trial investigation into suspicions that MG Baltic Vice-President Raimondas Kurlianskis, who has been just been released from custody, bribed politicians.
