On January 29, 1980, at the time of the arrest of Anastazas Janulis, |Missl Algina Suslavičiūtė of Kaišiadorys was also detained. She was questioned regarding Anastazas Janulis, and her home was searched the following day for underground publications. During the search many religious booklets, an address book, etc., were confiscated. Following the search, Suslavičiūtė was taken to Vilnius. The Chekist Matulevičius demanded that she tell all she knew about Janulis. She returned from the interrogation only on February 1.
Until Janulis's trial, Suslavičiūtė was often summoned by telephone to the Vilnius security offices for interrogations. (One should never heed telephone orders to report to security headquarters — Ed.). She was interrogated by the Chekist Balčiūnas. On one occasion the Chief of Security in Kaišiadorys asked Suslavičiūtė to be a spy and informer for the security police.
On August 24, 1980, while returning from Šiluva, Juozas Vasiliauskas, a resident of Šiauliai, 165-16 Leninas St., was detained in Tytuvėnai, forced into a car, and driven to headquarters. There he was interrogated: Why did he come to Tytuvėnai that day? Where did he find out that there was to be a religious festival? Was this the first time he had attended a religious festival there? How did he get there? How many people came with him? They released Vasiliauskas after checking his documents.
On October 14,1980, a group of KGB agents raided the small apartment of [Miss] Ada Urbonaitė (108-2 Apsai St., Kaunas). Towards evening, the security agents drove off in three automobiles with five bags of books and writing paper and Ada Urbonaitė herself. Her interrogation lasted until 10 p.m.
On August 24 Alfonsas Prakaitis, a resident of Panevėžys, 3-6a Purienos St., arrived at Tytuvėnai by car with his entire family to take part in the pilgrimage to Šiluva. His wife and his son joined the procession while Prakaitis and his seven-year-old daughter rode in the car. Along the way he gave a photographer a lift. The latter occasionally climbed out and photographed the procession. At about the halfway point, after the photographer disembarked, several policement jumped up to the car and demanded his driver's license and keys. When he refused, Prakaitis was dragged from his car and together with his daughter pushed into a police car. Here they beat the prisoner severely. They took him to the police headquarters of Tytuvėnai and interrogated him. Following the questioning, the police officers ordered him to write a statement saying that he had voluntarily surrendered his license and his keys. In Panevėžys, as a result of the severe beating he had suffered, Alfonsas Prakaitis was issued a certificate of disability from work for three days.
On September 3 Prakaitis received a summons to come to the Raseiniai Internal Affairs Department. He was threatened with jail for his resistance to the police officers. Eventually he was fined: a deduction of 20 rubles each month from his salary for two months.
