MOSCOW, June 16. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court has upheld a ruling that the Lithuanian secret service agent detained in Russia on espionage charges should remain in custody, a TASS correspondent reported on Tuesday.

Arstidas Tamosaitis was arrested on May 20 upon a decision of Moscow’s Lefortovo court. The Moscow City Court said the complaint filed by the defence team was "unmotivated" and found the decision on arrest of Tamosaitis lawful.

The complaint was considered behind the closed doors due to the secrecy of the case. The court announced only the resolutive part of the decision in public.

Russia’s Federal Security Service said earlier the Lithuanian citizen was caught red-handed on May 19 as he received classified documents from a Russian citizen. The foreigner was taken to the FSB office where he confessed to being officer of Lithuania's military intelligence.

Tamosaitis was put into Moscow’s Lefortovo jail on espionage charges.
