Honor murder in Finland?
Has the look and feel of one. The police are treating this as a case of something that could happen to anyone, regardless of nationality or religion. That tells me that it was another Somali or someone from a Muslim immigrant background. If it was an ethnic Finn involved, it would be blasted from every paper around Finland. Both the media and the police are at fault for not giving the full picture of the story, solely because of the ethnicity of the perp.
The police reassured distressed Somalis
Kaleva.fi: Northern Finland-Somalia Association organized on Monday evening a discussion meeting, due to the case of a dead Somali at the end of January. The man (born in 1993) died after falling from the sixth floor to the ground when he tried to escape from a neighbor who penetrated his home. The man tried to jump from his apartment window onto a nearby balcony.
The case has aroused some fear among Somalis living in Oulu, fear, as the perpetrator is still on the loose.
The police have investigated the background of the case, and the man who broke into the Somali’s home is suspected of a felony of home invasion and unlawful threatening.
The nature of the crime doesn’t fulfill the requirements for the ”maximum penalty”, so that we couldn’t detain the perp,” said senior criminal constable Milla Kynkäänniemi of the case.
She stated that the case is proceeding on time to the prosecutor, and ultimately to justice.
Along with Kynkäänniemen was the additional presence of Oulu Police Department had violated laptop constable Jouko Ilkka Autio and Pernu police protection.
During the conference, the police denied that the case showed any evidence of a racist crime, but this is an isolated incident that could happen to anyone, regardless of nationality or religion.
To be summed up in Thursday’s Kaleva paper.
