HELSINKI, October 28. /TASS/. Three persons will face charges in Finland in a case where the name of Russian President Vladimir Putin popped up on a police register of criminal suspects, the Finnish Yle television company said on Tuesday.
The three will be charged with negligence in maintaining the criminal register. Two of them are senior police officers, and the third one is a civil police employee. All the three however deny their fault. Originally, police had seven suspects in the case but later charges against four suspects were dropped.
According to Deputy Prosecutor General Jorma Kalske, investigators found out that the police register of criminal suspects had names and phone numbers of people who had never been suspected of any offences or crimes.
An investigation began in April 2013 after the MTV3 television channel reported that the name of Russian President Vladimir Putin had been put on the police classified register of criminal suspects.
