A court on Tuesday fined a prisoner for assaulting the detained former Helsinki Drug unit police chief Jari Aarnio inside the prison.
 
The male prisoner was handed a 30-day fine and was also ordered to compensate Arnio 100 euros.
 
The assault took place in autumn at a Vantaa prison during an exercise session for prisoners.
 
The man kicked Aarnio and as a result Aarnio fell to the ground.
 
The man who was present during the proceeding in the court admitted his guilt and said he acted upon impulse.
 
Neither Aarnio nor his lawyer was present in the court during the verdict.
 
Aarnio was arrested on November 12, 2013 on charges of crimes including taking bribes from a private company.  
 
He is also suspected of receiving kickbacks from Trevoc Company and being involved in procurement of supplies from the same company for his employer.
 
Almost 30 charges have so far been pressed against Aarnio. The former chief of the Helsinki police drug unit, however, denies all of them.
