The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) offered to serve alcohol to a woman in a restaurant before interrogating her in connection with suspicions surrounding the former head of Helsinki police drug unit, Jari Aarnio.
 
The woman who also stands accused in the case made the allegation to the media.
 
The report was run, for instance, by a Finnish language commercial broadcaster, MTV, and a Finnish language daily, Helsingin Sanomat.
 
The so-called Malmi woman was going to meet NBI investigator unofficially on one afternoon in a restaurant where she took Irish coffee.
 
Afterward, the police took the woman for questioning. According to the Helsingin Sanomat, the police were initially to take the woman to her home but instead she was taken to the NBI facility in Vantaa for questioning.
 
The woman’s lawyer, Juha-Pekka Hippi, expressed his surprise in court on Tuesday at the turn of events which entailed going out to eat, enjoying alcohol and then deciding to embark on interrogation.
 
According to the NBI, the woman herself proposed the Soul Kitchen restaurant in a text message.
 
“She was cooperative and willing, thus we wanted to try what she knows,” the police explained.
 
According to the prosecutor, it is strange to make subsequent complaints which have been reviewed even after the interrogation.
