(SBU) Vaida Linartaite, Chief Specialist in the Complaints 
Investigation and International Cooperation Division of the GOL's 
Data Protection Inspectorate, told us August 25 that her office was 
not yet aware of any proposed changes to the EU's rules on 
transmitting passenger data to third countries.  She also said that 
Lithuanian-based carriers do not fly transatlantic routes and 
therefore do not provide USG authorities with passenger data.
