President Dalia Grybauskaitė says that Lithuania's failure to improve its position in Transparency International's latest Corruption Perception Index shows that the country's bodies do not make sufficient use of the instruments they have to curb corruption.

"Instruments are available, but they are still underused, and this is a responsibility of both law-enforcement and executive bodies," she told reporters on Thursday.

Lithuania ranked 38th out of 180 countries surveyed in the index released by Transparency International on Wednesday, unchanged from last year. This puts Lithuania ahead of Latvia, but behind Poland and Estonia.
