The three unnamed companies were imposed a combined fine of €6,342, the Bank of Lithuania said.

One company was sanctioned for failing to properly check data supplied by its clients about their financial obligations.

The other two companies would in some instances fail to include data about clients' financial obligations into their credit worthiness assessment.

The central bank has said the sanctioned companies' names will be released in 30, unless the decision is challenged at court.
