The killer became a candidate in municipal elections in Finland
A man who committed 30 years ago, hard murder, became a candidate in municipal elections in Finland.
The candidate from the party “True Finns” was a former prisoner sentenced in the 80-ies of the last century to life in prison. It is known that he was convicted of murder committed with extreme stiffness, and a series of attempts to repeat the crime. However, in the 90-ies of the man personally pardoned at that time the President of Finland Mauno Koivisto.
According to the Finnish legislation the reasons for refusal to register a candidate was not found. Unusual candidate does not hide her dark past, but the Finnish journalists did not disclose to him personally for ethical reasons. “True Finns” also declined to comment on this precedent.
The municipal election will be held in Finland on 9 April.
