FTimes-STT Report, March 15

The Helsinki District Court fined 16 policemen on Friday in connection with the investigation surrounding the death of skiing legend Mika Myllylä.

The court observed that the policemen had breached laws that protected individual privacy and were in breach of official duty during the police investigation of Myllylä's death in July 2011.

Almost all the policemen received an equivalent of 10-day-fines, ranging between 160-450 euros, for breach of duty.

All the fined policemen worked in Helsinki Police Department during the time of the intrusion allegations, except for one who was attached to Liikuva poliisi, a mobile police unit.

Data snooping into the cause of Myllylä's death has led to charges against 90 people across the country.

The news was reported on Friday by both YLE and Helsingin Sanomat.
