Classified By: DCM D. Leader for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
(C) On November 6 we met with Romualdas Boreika, Director 
General, and Igoris Krzeckovskis, Advisor in the 
International Relations Division, of the Lithuanian Financial 
Crime Investigation Service (FNTT) to discuss reftels. 
(Note:  We met with FNTT, which falls under the purview of 
the Ministry of the Interior, because it is this agency and 
not the Ministry of Finance that implements all GOL actions 
regarding money laundering and terrorism finance.)  They 
informed us that FNTT had distributed ref C and D information 
regarding Iranian entities and FATF guidelines to Lithuanian 
banks on November 5, with a request that banks pay special 
attention to and inform the FNTT of any transactions 
involving Iranian entities.  If a Lithuanian bank receives a 
request to perform a transaction for an Iranian entity, 
Boreika and Krzeckovskis promise to inform post and the 
Lithuanian State Security Department (VSD).
