The Finance Ministry last week launched an official probe into possible corrupt activities by Bradauskas, based on information from law-enforcement bodies.

According to the sources, the Finance Ministry was informed, among other things, about contacts and personal meetings between Bradauskas and MG Baltic Vice-president Raimondas Kurlianskis allegedly aimed at coordinating their actions regarding certain VMI investigations.

It is said that Bradauskas repeatedly met with Kurlianskis shortly after his appointment as the VMI head in April 2015 to discuss the tax authority's ongoing probes involving VP and MG Baltic.

It is suspected that the two men discussed how to influence tax inspectors in charge of these investigations and that Bradauskas shared information about the investigations with Kurlianskis in exchange for his political support.

It is also suspected that Bradauskas coordinated the course of some major investigations with Diana Dominienė, a former member of the management board at the VP Group.
