Terhi Kiemunki reviews charges in court – according prosecutor she insulted Muslims
Tampere Finns Party politician Terhi Kiemunki is due at Pirkanmaa District Court on Monday to face charges of incitement against an ethnic group. The prosecutor alleges that Kiemunki slandered and defamed Islam in her blog and social media postings.
Kiemunki herself asked for authorities to look into whether her writings were punishable, but has denied any crime during the preliminary investigation.
The Pirkanmaa region Finns Party board dismissed her from her post as deputy chair due to a “lack of confidence” in her. However Kiemunki remains on the Tampere City Council and in her job as assistant to MP Lea Mäkipää.
