"A decision was taken not to refer to the Grand Chamber over the case Abu Zubaydah v. Lithuania. Such a decision is a result of several factors which would ultimately prevent the appeal from achieving its goal and could possibly undermine Lithuania's reputation on the international scene," the statement read.
The ECHR ruled in late May that Lithuania was complicit in CIA's secret rendition program which led to rights violations and arbitrary detention in CIA "black sites" of al-Qaeda* suspects, including Palestinian Abu Zubaydah.
Lithuania was ordered to pay 100,000 euros (about $116,000) in damages to Zubaydah for allowing the CIA to subject him to an ill-treatment on the territory of the Baltic country.
According to the statement, Lithuanian authorities would take necessary steps to fulfill the ECHR ruling once it comes into effect on August 31.
