Bradauskas was dismissed from the post on Jan. 20 for gross official misconduct, as recommended by a commission set up by the Finance Ministry to probe into the tax chief's activities.

Finance Minister Vilius Šapoka then said that certain information leaked by Bradauskas had adversely affected tax investigations of MG Baltic and Vilniaus Prekyba (VP).

The minister said that the-then tax chief had repeatedly met with MG Baltic Vice-president Raimondas Kurlianskis to inform him about the course of the tax investigations of the two business groups.

According to unofficial information, Bradauskas and Kurlianskis spoke about passing on certain information about the tax investigation involving VP or about the group's shareholders to Diana Dominiene, a representative of the VP Group.

Bradauskas was appointed head of the STI in mid-April 2015.
