¶1.  Darius Staniulis, head of the MFA's Human Rights and NGO 
division, was pleased to learn that Lithuania remained in 
Tier 1 when we shared the 2008 TIP report with him on June 4. 
 He noted that both police and NGOs noticed a considerable 
decrease in identified victims over the last two years and 
said he feels this is evidence that anti-TIP efforts in 
Lithuania have been effective.  He added that the GOL is 
considering making TIP a priority issue when it holds the 
chair of the OSCE in 2011. 
 
¶2.  We shared the TIP report via email with other GOL 
officials on June 4 and  with relevant local NGOs on June 5. 
We posted the English version of the TIP report on Post's 
website on June 5 and will post the Lithuanian translation as 
soon as it is available.
