In 2018–2019, Edvinas Šatas was the main defence lawyer in a high-profile corruption case where the client was suspected of bribery acting with a group of accomplices. Allegations made against the client stated that the client had allegedly created conditions for people to pass examinations and obtain certificates of completion in a fraudulent way without possessing required knowledge. The certificates confirming successful passing of the examinations allowed foreign nationals to legalize their stay in Lithuania. Accusations of illegal conditions created for foreign nationals were made against nine individuals.
The pre-trial investigation against the defendant was terminated.
