Ruling Peasants’ Party Leader Says Genocide Center Won’t Get Square

Ramūnas Karbauskis, the head of the ruling Union of Lithuanian Peasants and Greens said the current parliament won’t consider amendments handing Vilnius’s Lukiškės Square over to the Center for the Study of the Genocide and Resistance of Residents of Lithuania. The square is located across the street from the center which is housed in the former Gestapo and KGB headquarters.

He said previously the draft amendments would return to the parliamentary floor from committee after elections. On Thursday Karbauskis said it wouldn’t make sense to do so now as a new ruling majority is being formed.
