'Finland’s prime minister has used a New Year’s address to demand citizens refrain from “disseminating hate speech” in the wake of investigations into a foreign rape gang preying on young girls.
Juha Sipilä referred to recent events in Oulu, where police have identified 10 foreign suspects in connection with cases involving grooming, sexual abuse, and violence against children as young as ten as he warned Finns not to “stir up hatred” against migrants.
While acknowledging the incidents had “provoked shock and anger” across the country, the prime minister insisted “it should be emphasised that the suspected crimes were committed by individuals, not by population groups”.
“I call for these events not to be used in anger against refugees or people of foreign origin,” Sipilä said in his speech on Monday, telling citizens: “Let me point out that vigilante justice is a crime in the eyes of the law, as is disseminating hate speech.”
“Persons found guilty of crimes will be held accountable for their actions in accordance with the rule of law,” stated the Centre Party leader, underscoring the government’s recent vow to get tough on foreign criminals as he added that “serious offences will negatively affect [a third world migrant’s chances] of obtaining a permanent residence permit.”
Breitbart London reported last month on plans being considered by Finnish lawmakers which would revoke citizenship from foreign nationals who have been convicted of crimes related to terrorism or treason.'
