Seven Finnish police staff were on Friday suspected of being involving in erroneously putting Russian President Vladimir Putin's name on a criminal suspect list of Finland's National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).
The Office of the Prosecutor General of Finland said that preliminary investigations on the case had been completed and transferred to Deputy Prosecutor General Jorma Kalske.
In April 2013, the Finnish commercial TV channel MTV3 revealed that Putin's name was on a criminal suspect registry of NBI.
The leak caused huge embarrassment for the Finnish government and the NBI, with both making apologies to Putin in April last year.
According to the Office of the Prosecutor General, the result of the preliminary investigation showed that seven police staff, of which five were police officers and two civil servants, were suspected of breach of duty.
However, all the suspects denied having committed a crime.
