The association of depositors and creditors of Lithuania’s bankrupt Snoras bank plans to contest the prosecutors’ decision to dismiss investigation into the actions of Neil Cooper, the bank's outgoing bankruptcy administrator.

“We still have doubts about Mr. Cooper’s actions in the past and will soon go to court over the discontinuation of the investigation related to Mr. Cooper, over those money transfers. We are now consulting lawyers and will submit a complaint,” Danukas Arlauskas, the head of the association, told BNS.

The complaint will be lodged by the end of October, he added.

The Lithuanian Prosecutor General's Office early in September ended its pre-trial investigation into certain actions of Neil Cooper after finding no signs of criminal activity.

The prosecutors suspected Cooper of having illegally performed two financial transactions which caused 1.232 million litas (EUR 357,000) in damage. However, the money concerned was later returned to the bank.

Linas Kuprusevičius, a Vilnius prosecutor who dismissed the investigation, then said that the transactions, which were carried out after the suspension of the bank’s operations, were a mistake.

In mid-September, Prosecutor General Darius Valys ordered to check whether or not the decision to end the investigation was justified. Saulius Verseckas, a prosecutor with the Prosecutor General’s Office, stated after the check that the decision was right although it could have been more detailed and better reasoned.
