gutaumazint During March 2013, MRU's Law Faculty Prof. Aurelijus Gutauskas was interviewed by a journalist from the Danish tabloid newspaper, "Ekstra Bladet" on organized Lithuanian crime gangs operating in Denmark that engage in narcotics trade and prostitution.

Prof. Gutauskas pointed out that in recent years more criminals, that do not belong to well-known organized crime groups, come to Denmark and engage in criminal activities. Often criminals force minors to take part in illegal activities and sometimes the minors are victims of human trafficking.

The Danish police is concerned about the threat to their security from criminals coming from Lithuania. Many of them come from Kaunas.

Prof. Gutauskas is a member of MRU's Law Faculty's Institute of Criminal Law and Process.
