IS Report: More than half of convicted sex offenders in Helsinki and Oulu are foreigners
The report included the criminal convictions of the Helsinki and Oulu District Courts in 2018. They were accused of over a hundred suspects, 82 of whom were found guilty.
As many as 43, or more than half, were of foreign origin. There were 39 ethnic Finns.
The difference was born in Helsinki, where foreigners were convicted.
In the IS report, people who were born outside of Finland or who are nationals of a country other than Finland were counted as foreigners. The second or third generation immigrants were not considered here.
The data come from the population register. In principle, they are not public, but the Population Register Center (CGR) provided the information to Ilta-Sanomat under a data protection law for journalistic purposes.
