The District Court of Kymenlaakso on Friday fined a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) senior detective constable for breach of official position in a case entangled with the suspicion surrounding former head of Helsinki Drug Unit, Jari Aarnio.
The court ordered him to pay 50-day fine which is equivalent to 1,400 euros for breach of official position.
According to the court, the man hindered the pre-trial investigation since he became too close to the so called “Malmi woman”.
The police man was the main interrogator in Aarnio's case which focused on the “Malmi wom-an”.
The police officer and the woman maintained close relationship after her release from remand and met frequently.
During the pre-trial investigation, the senior officer loaned the woman 3,000 euros, a moped and two phones, among other things.
According to the court, the police and the woman became friends during the investigation period.
The court stated that the police official should not have associated himself with pre-trial investi-gations after the woman had been released from remand.
The police official, therefore, acted as an impediment since he became too close to the woman, ruled the court.
