The Tax Inspectorate said on Wednesday it had asked the Supreme Court to find whether the refusal of the Court of Appeals to hear the civil claim was grounded.

In February, the Court of Appeals found the Labour Party's founder MEP Viktor Uspaskich, MP Vytautas Gapšys and the party's former accountant Marina Liutkevičienė guilty of bookkeeping fraud, but cleared them on fraud charges.

The court then refused to hear civil claims against the defendants about unpaid taxes and fees, saying "the convicts have been vindicated in the part on tax obligations".

The inspectorate said in its press release that the court had nevertheless found that the bookkeeping fraud was aimed at "avoiding paying mandatory taxes and fees to the state".

According to case information, the Labour Party failed to include €7.04 million in income and €14.73 million in spending in its books in the 2004–2006 period.
