MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th August, 2019) Finland's Supreme Court upheld on Tuesday the legality of a search in the home of Laura Halminen, a journalist for the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper, local media reported.
In December 2017, Halminen published an article about the Finnish Defense Forces' Intelligence Research Center, after which the National Bureau of Investigation launched an inquiry into the journalist. Finnish authorities believed that the article contained classified information that posed a threat to national security.
Halminen insisted on recognizing the confiscations as null and void because of alleged procedural breaches.
