Nasima Razmyar (right) was pictured visiting a reception centre in Helsinki along with her fellow MPs Eva Biaudet (SFP) and Erkki Tuomioja (SDP) on 18 December, 2015.Nasima Razmyar (SDP) has accused Ilkka Koskimäki, the deputy chief of police at Helsinki Police Department, for making light of the issue of sexual harassment.

Koskimäki received widespread public attention on Friday for estimating in an interview with The Telegraph that the sexual harassment that took place during New Year's festivities represented a new phenomenon in the history of sex crimes in Finland. The British newspaper also wrote that security personnel in Finland reported “widespread sexual harassment” during the festivities.

“What kind of message has the deputy chief of police sent to women who, at worst, may have been harassed by adults since childhood? The message sounded belittling to me: nothing out of the ordinary, better get used to it. A visit to a women's shelter could do good not only for the chief of police but also for many others. The women there could tell just how serious a problem we have had and continue to have,” Razmyar writes on her blog.

She also expressed her puzzlement at why the issue has only recently become a part of the public debate.

“Everyone is surely pleased that the sexual harassment of women, be it physical or psychological, is finally being taken seriously. Many are wondering how it is possible that the issue only received public attention after the hand of the groper became darker than before. That is what I am wondering as well,” she writes.

Koskimäki also came under criticism from Kaisa Hernberg, a member of the Party Delegation of the Green League. “Claims that immigrants have brought a new kind of harassment culture to Finland have been a recent feature of the public debate. It vexes all of us who have experienced harassment since childhood,” she comments on her blog.
