A Lithuanian MP has suggested that violation of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operation rules should be subject not only to a EUR 100-500 fine but also to the confiscation of a UAV or a free flight aircraft model.

MP Arvydas Anušauskas has registered a draft amendment to the Code of Administrative Offences at the Secretariat of the Seimas Sittings.

Based on the proposal, a drone could be confiscated even if it is not owned by the violator. The proposal would enter into effect starting 1 August 2016 if approved.

At the moment, Lithuanian legislation does not regulate administrative liability for violating UAV operation rules.
