"No suspicions have been brought against the party as of today, and the party has not received any money that it shouldn't have received. (...) The party is transparent, this can be seen clearly, I have printed out bank statements since the ban on party financing by legal entities - no (cash) has been received in the party's accounts from any legal entities," Šimašius told journalists at the parliament on Thursday.

In his words, the audit conducted at the Liberal Movement last year shows no unlawful income. The leader confirmed that the party had never been sponsored by individuals linked with MG Baltic concern.
