The Dutch authority is going to hand over a gang leader of the criminal organisation United Brotherhood, who is reportedly connected to a case of detained Helsinki drug unit police chief Jari Aarnio, police sources have said.
The Netherlands authority arrested the criminal, who was convicted in absentia by Helsinki court, in late-2013 after he fled from Finland, but the Finnish authority remained tight lipped on when the gang leader would be handed over to Finland.
The law enforcement authority suspect that some of charges brought against the gang leader were connected to Jari Aarnio, the suspended head of Helsinki police drug squad, who was arrested on November 12 on various allegations including taking bribe.
The convicted criminal gang leader is also suspected of committing five serious drug offences.
He is also believed to have been involved in trafficking hundreds of kilograms of hashish from the Netherlands.
Investigations have also established suspicions of his involvement in abetting fraud as well as facilitating Aaarnio's abuse of official position.
Earlier, on October 7, a court sentenced a member of the crime gang United Brotherhood to 11 years imprisonment for various criminal acts including possessing illegal arms, drugs and money laundering. 
United Brotherhood is a notorious criminal organization, which was established comprising three previous criminal groups M.O.R.E., Natural Born Killers and Rogues Gallery.
The gang members are involved in economical crimes, drugs and money laundering. The huge amount of firearms recovered from the group member revealed the group’s capacity to commit serious violence.
There are about 70-90 members of the organization at different parts of Finland. The gang has three categories of membership and the members of each group are identified by particular dress and logos.
About 50 members of the group are in jail now.
