The First Vilnius City Police Department has sent an e-mail to the Lithuanian Jewish Community declining to investigate further an incident on Victory Day, May 9, when motorcyclists dressed up in Nazi German military uniforms and helmets, played German march music and harassed Vilnius residents marking Victory Day against Nazi Germany as well as the embassy of the Russian Federation in Vilnius. The Nazi bikers rode circles around the embassy several times and did the same in central Vilnius. The event was recorded on our webpage here.
After explaining why the Prosecutor General’s Office passed the case to Vilnius police to investigate, the document maintains police checked the motorcyclists during the event and found no Nazi symbols on their uniforms. Investigator Vitalija Auglytė noted in the document police determined there was no law against playing German military airs in public, and said police on the scene had warned the bikers to disperse because their actions could be considered offensive by a portion of society.
