Anneli Auer hopes that she would one day be able to lead a normal life.

Auer on Wednesday took part in the Suomi Areena discussion in Pori where her participation had drawn a huge interest from the crowd. The audience filled the seats well before the start of the discussion.

“I am still held by this trial and I cannot yet quite imagine what I would do for the rest of my life. I believe that some kind of life can still be found,” Auer told the huge audience.

Auer has become a topic of discussion in the country for long after the murder of her husband Ulvila in December 2006, and in 2009 she was suspected of the murder.

Finally Auer was acquitted of the charges after a very long series of trials with many stages.

She was sentenced to over seven years in prison for aggravated child sexual abuse and rape, among other things. She has since demanded the annulment of the sexual offence conviction. The process is still going on.

Currently, Auer meets her eldest child about once a week. Her relationship with the other children is in practice blocked.

“I have lost the three youngest (children),” Auer said in Pori.

Auer said she has not given up, and believes that she will one day be united with her children.

Earlier, the Satakunta district court in 2010 sentenced Auer to life-term imprisonment as she was convicted of killing her husband.

But an appellate court acquitted her in 2011, overturning the judgement of the lower court.

The Supreme Court later in 2012 rejected both the judgements of the district court and the appellate court, and ordered for a fresh trial of the case. But finally she was acquitted.
