Acting Prosecutor General Raija Toiviainen reminds that no case law has yet been established in Finland for offences such as preparing an offence to be committed with terrorist intent.
Acting Prosecutor General Raija Toiviainen reminds that no case law has yet been established in Finland for offences such as preparing an offence to be committed with terrorist intent.

 

Three Finns were charged with a handful of terrorist offences on Wednesday.

Acting Prosecutor General Raija Toiviainen revealed to Uusi Suomi that the trio are suspected of preparing an offence to be committed with terrorist intent, providing training for the commission of a terrorist offence and recruiting for the commission of a terrorist offence. All of the offences are believed to have taken place in Finland between late 2012 and mid-2013.

The Office of the Prosecutor General stated in a press release that the charges are related to the conflict in Syria. The defendants are believed to have prepared to travel to the country in order to participate in the conflict as so-called foreign fighters.

If convicted, they would become the first to be convicted of the said offences in Finland, highlighted Toiviainen. Recruitment for the commission of a terrorist offence, for example, was criminalised under the criminal code in 2014.

“This case is the first of its kind to be considered [by a court]. We’re dealing with such a new issue that no case law has yet been established,” she said.

Toiviainen also revealed that the three suspects were remanded for one to three months at the beginning of the pre-trial investigation in October, 2014. None of them are any longer in police custody, however.

Hearings in the case are reportedly set to begin at the District Court of Helsinki in November.
