Lithuanian Terrorism Suspect Free On Bail

Posted by Info on 06/08/2010

Terrorism suspect Eglė Kusaitė walked free after 9 month in pre-trial detention from the Vilnius Court of Appeals on Thursday. A judge ruled that she was not at risk of fleeing the country and said there was no reason to believe that Kusaitė would disappear, commit another crime or escape into secrecy. The fact that she does hold conversations with foreigners was not enough to detain her. Her trial date has not been set yet.

Kusaitė was arrested with her Lithuanian passport that had a Russian visa inside and a ticket to Moscow. In her bag were documents on how to make explosives and information on the workings of the underground transport network in the Russian capital.
The Baltic News Service reported that she had been married to a young Chechen man, but he left her to return home to fight in the resistance and was killed in fighting…..She is also said to have links to other terrorist groups in Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and England.
