The committee has been asked to carry out such an investigation by 99 lawmakers.

The committee "will have to investigate the use and storage of information received by means of criminal intelligence," the Seimas resolution reads.

"We have to investigate how the Law on Criminal Intelligence is being implemented today and also propose to the Seimas and those institutions responsible for the implementation of the law on ways to do that and whether any amendments are needed," Legal Affairs Committee chairman Julius Sabatauskas told journalists on Thursday.

In his words, there have been cases in recent months when it turned out that information received by means of criminal intelligence is used when people are appointed to certain position and that information might be unreliable.

The committee was ordered to carry out the probe by January 31, 2016.
