"I spoke to the director today and told him that I saw no possibility for him to stay in the job," the minister told BNS on Monday.

Law enforcement officials suspect that the State Food and Veterinary Service covered up information about bacterial contamination in products of Judex, a Kaunas-based frozen food company.
