Six female colleagues of the recently closed Finnish ambassador to Sweden Jarmo Viinanen in an interview with the Finnish language daily Helsingin Sanomat accused the ambassador of inappropriate behaviour.
 
The women working at the foreign ministry were interviewed anonymously.
 
An official working in New York said Viinanen approached and harassed workers by word of mouth.
 
According to the Helsingin Sanomat, one was a case of physical advances related to one of three women working at the embassy in Sweden, while, for the two other women, the women are reported to have experienced inappropriate proposals and speeches.
 
Furthermore, two other women said that Viinanen made physical advances to them earlier in his career at the Foreign Ministry.
 
Viinanen himself, according to the Helsingin Sanomat, has denied allegations of sexual harassments.
 
The authorities recalled Jarmo Viinanen after a foreign ministry probe revealed his inappropriate behaviour.
