Romanians rank second among Finland’s foreign inmates

Romanians come second as to the number of foreigners detained in Finnish prisons, ahead of the Russians, Antena 3 cited Finnish television channel YLE as reporting. Researcher Marja-Liisa Muiluvuori said on Wednesday that the number of foreign persons detained in Finnish prisons in December of last year was growing to 14 pc year-on-year, from 2 pc. Nearly half of the foreign detainees serve sentences for drug offences, and nearly one-third, for theft. Foreign inmates account for 470 of an average daily prison population of 3,260. Muiluvuori said Finland is last but one Europe-wide as to the number of detainees per capita, namely close to 60 inmates to 100,000 inhabitants. Finland has opposed Romania’s accession to the Schengen area on corruption grounds.
