Finnish government laugh it up after pulling a fast one on the taxpayer.
The amount Finnish taxpayers are liable for if the Greeks can’t pay back their loans, is not 14 billion Euros, but instead, 28 billion Euros. They lied both to parliament and to the people. It’s contemptible, but that’s the corrupting influence of the EU, where the voter is treated like a subject.
Constitutional Law Committee chairman Johannes Koskinen says government made
unprecedented mistake on (lied about) EFSF
Expert testimony also spread erroneous information to Parliament
Johannes Koskinen (SDP), the chairman of the Constitutional Law Committee of the Finnish Parliament, says that the government made an unprecedented mistake in legislation concerning Finnish liability for bailout loans granted to eurozone countries in financial crisis.
Koskinen says that it is likely that the government will have to revise its bill on Finnish guarantees in the euro crisis. He sees the mistake as extremely embarrassing for the government.
In addition to the error in the text of the law, some of the MPs on the Constitutional Law Committee are upset about erroneous information that the committee was given when the EFSF was discussed in the committee on December.
