The Finnish intelligence service Supo has denied that the police divulged to the Customs and the Border Guard the information that Interpol had requested them to keep secret.
 
The matter is related to the July suspected terrorist threat in Norway.
 
Jyri Rantala, director of communication at Supo, said Interpol had nothing to do with how the authorities in Finland had been informed about the terrorist attacks.
 
Rantala said the Finnish police, Customs and Border Guard have crime prevention powers that make them unique internationally.
 
For this reason, the police relayed the information to the Customs and the Border Guard.
 
“Later it turned out that the Finnish approach was different from what the Norwegian authorities would have wished,” said Rantala.
 
According to the Swedish news agency TT, Interpol had sent the photos of the suspects to police authorities in Europe but had asked the information to be kept secret.
