There is indeed a hierarchy in culture.
Now when certain politicians make statements that ”differences in culture reason enough to reject certain immigrants residency in Finland”, all hell breaks loose with the media laying charges of racism and bigotry.
NOTE: Kudos to the prosecutor’s office for bucking the fake morality of the politically correct multi-culti crowd.
According to the prosecution, the children’s deprivation had lasted for more than a month and they had been taken from the living surroundings of Tampere, to a completely different cultural environment.
IL: Tampere District Court sentenced the father of child abduction, multiple deprivation of liberty and extortion of the mother with ten months’ of conditional imprisonment.

Travel funded by mother’s jewelry

The children’s and father’s air travel was financed by stealing jewelry from the mother of the children, which was taken to a pawn Shop. Jewelry was valued at 1,400 euros. In addition, the men took the mother’s bank card.
