At the same time it is considered to be the starting point for the legal system of the Republic of Lithuania from which it has been beginning to evolve and develops into the direction on respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms. This is clearly reflected in the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania adopted by citizens of the Republic of Lithuania in the Referendum of 25 October 1992. The preamble of the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania provides that one of the most significant aims of the Lithuanian nation is to strive for an open and harmonious civil society and law-based state. This aim means that the Republic of Lithuania must be under the rule of law and the most important values are the human rights, fundamental freedoms. Each democratic country based on rule of law is responsible and accountable for ensuring human rights and fundamental freedoms enshrined in the international and domestic law.

It should be noted that the special investigation techniques such as controlled delivery, covert surveillance are legitimate and internationally recognized. For better understanding of matter of covert surveillance it will be useful and valuable thing to do to research genesis of legal regulation of surveillance in context of ancient law monuments.
