Zydrunas Bartkus, head of Lithuania's anti-corruption agency, on Wednesday named the suspects, who included justices with Lithuania's Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court, and five lawyers, among others.
One case was about a high-profile corruption scandal involving a southern Lithuania estate that a prosecutor claimed was illegally built in a pristine area. A court eventually rejected that claim, citing a 2015 change in government policy. After that, Lithuania's anti-corruption agency opened an investigation into the court system.
