The Helsinki District Court on Monday remanded a man to custody on suspicion of murdering a woman in Helsinki Laajsalo District more than a week ago. 
 
The executive director of Kansallinen Kokoomus (National Coalition Party) Youth League’s Helsinki branch was suspected of killing the woman, according to the national broadcasting company YLE.
 
The alleged murder took place in Laajasalo Oil Harbour a week ago on Saturday. The suspect lived in the same apartment building as the victim, said the police, adding that the victim was driven to the seashore in a car.
 
Prime Minister Alexander Stubb termed the murder shocking. He briefly commented on the incident during a joint press conference with the visiting Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven at Kesäranta, the premier’s official residence.
 
Stubb also relayed his condolences to the loved ones of the deceased.
 
According to Stubb, the Kansallinen Kokoomus has been informed that the suspect had served in the party’s youth wing.
 
“When such a thing happens in any work place, it is a deep shock,” remarked the prime minister.
 
According to YLE, the suspect has confessed to murdering the woman of foreign origin.
 
Earlier, Minna Arve, Kokoomus party secretary, told YLE that the party leaders were informed of the murder and identity of the suspect.
 
“We are all deeply shocked at this personal tragedy, and express our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased,” Arve was quoted as saying.
 
Arve said it was an individual case that had nothing to do with the party.
