Published torsdag 16 augusti 2012 kl 13.40

Lithuanian prosecutors say they have launched an official investigation into the “Teddy Bear Stunt”, to determine if a Swedish PR firm broke laws and regulations when flying a plane from Lithuania into Belarus to drop 800 stuffed animals carrying human rights messages.

According to a press release “the investigation was launched over the illegal crossing of state borders and violation of international flight regulations.”
