Police: Hakkarainen's Foreigner Comments Not a Crime
Comments about foreigners made by newly-elected True Finn MP Teuvo Hakkarainen in a video interview with the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat do not constitute a crime, according to Helsinki police. The police have notified the Prosecutor General's office that they will not conduct a preliminary investigation into the matter.
Ombudsman for Minorities, Eva Biaudet, had requested an investigation into whether Hakkarainen had crossed the boundaries of what is acceptable freedom of expression.
