According to the portal, he confirmed his decision to Lietuvos Rytas TV but pleaded not guilty.

"No, this is absolute nonsense. I am stepping down because it humiliates me. Whatever I say, it will not help handle the matter within a short period of time. I believe my protest should be in the form of legal measures," Gasiūnas said.
