SUBJECT: PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE SETS SCHEDULE FOR MEETINGS 
ON ALLEGED CIA PRISON 
 
REF: VILNIUS 592 
 
¶1.  The National Security and Defense Committee of the 
Lithuanian Seimas (parliament) has decided to meet Mondays, 
Wednesdays and Fridays to conduct its investigation into the 
alleged existence in Lithuania several years ago of a CIA 
prison for terrorist suspects.  The committee has not 
finalized its agenda yet, but does have rules saying that the 
committee will decide before each meeting whether to admit 
the public or not.  A committee staffer told us that he 
expected all meetings to be closed. 
 
¶2.  Media reported that on November 13 the committee talked 
to military intelligence officers.  Committee chairman 
Arvydas Anusauskas did not tell reporters which officers had 
been interviewed or what they had said or been asked. 
 
¶3.  On November 11, media reported, committee members visited 
the State Security Department base near Vilnius that had been 
identified by media as a possible site of the alleged prison. 
 The committee's vice chairman, Vytautas Bogusis, declined to 
tell reporters the purpose of the visit.
