The chief of Security Police (Supo), Antti Pelttari termed the current Finnish intelligence unsustainable.
 
Talking to the Finnish language newspapers Ilkka and Pohjalainen, he also said that intelligence requires quick action.
 
Pelttari said the change in the security situation in recent years has been the most significant in Supo’s history. The reason for this is, for example, the tense situation in the Baltic Sea.
 
Pelttari believes the military has the means to respond to threats, and that the police in Finland are the world’s most powerful.
 
The worse holes in Finland’s defence are found, according to him, in intelligence. 
 
Enactment of a law is underway with a view to give Supo intelligence powers over civilians working abroad and online.
