In his words, Aidukas would find it difficult to conduct his powers at a judge in the current situation.

Norkus said Aidukas had pledged to make up his mind within a few weeks.

Last Thursday, Aidukas was questioned as special witness in the probe of influence peddling by a prosecutor in the Labour Party's trial.

The status of special witness means that the person is questioned about his actions amid lack of evidence for bringing suspicions against him. In Lithuania, judges enjoy legal immunity, therefore, cannot face any suspicions.
