A court in Finland has arrested three people suspected of leaking confidential information about a network of tunnels used by the military. Major Finnish media revealed that two brothers and a woman were candidates in the last parliamentary elections held in early April.

A district court in Oulu arrested two brothers and a woman on Friday on suspicion of leaking confidential information on social media, including related to the country’s network of tunnels used by the military.

The criminal police (KRP) requested the arrest. The suspects are civilians and the crime under investigation is not related to their official work, the police said.

Investigators suspect that “information published by suspects could cause serious damage to national defense or security of supply.”

Data about the network of secret tunnels has been revealed

The main Finnish media released the names of those arrested, due to the exceptional nature of the case and the fact that they were candidates in the last parliamentary elections held in early April. They ran in the northern constituencies (in Oulu and Lapland) from lists of smaller parties with negligible public support. They received few votes and did not get into parliament.

According to the Finnish Press Agency STT, the detainees disseminated on the Internet, especially on the YouTube channel, e.g. information on national tunnels, including the network under Helsinki or near military facilities. They also made a map of them. They have also been linked to pro-Russian groups on social media.

According to the Finnish Penal Code, revealing a country’s security secret is punishable by imprisonment for a period of four months to four years.
