The prosecutor says this time would be necessary to complete investigation procedures, including allowing the suspect to get acquainted with pre-trial investigation materials and satisfy requests, but he says he would be able to complete the investigation itself during a shorter period of time.

"I see the risk that a person who was on the run for 6 years might do that again," the prosecutor told journalists in Kaunas on Thursday.

In his words, suspicions are brought against Venckiene for hitting Laimute Stankunaite, the mother of her niece, in the face, hitting a police officer, refusing to obey a court order, and hindering a bailiff.

Indre Cvilikaite, spokeswoman for Kaunas District Court, told journalists the court is set to decide on the measure of suppression on Friday.
