Jonas Gasiūnas, professor at the Vilnius Academy of Art and National Prize winner, is stepping down after anonymous accusations of sexually exploiting his female students, lrytas.lt news portal said.
According to the portal, he confirmed his decision to Lietuvos Rytas TV but pleaded not guilty.
"No, this is absolute nonsense. I am stepping down because it humiliates me. Whatever I say, it will not help handle the matter within a short period of time. I believe my protest should be in the form of legal measures," Gasiūnas said.
