A citizen of Lithuania has been charged with spying for Belarus.

Lithuania's Deputy Prosecutor-General Darius Raulusaitis told journalists on November 10 that a resident of Vilnius, who was arrested a year ago, had worked at a company linked to aviation flight control.

The suspect's name was not disclosed and only his initials -- R.L. -- have been given. No more details were made public.

If he is found guilty, the suspect could face up to 15 years in jail.
