Opinion: Panama Papers should not jeopardise freedom of speech

Our mandate is to protect our sources.

Finnish tax authorities are calling on national broadcaster Yle to hand over the data sources that formed the basis of the so-called Panama Papers leak. However we will not comply with the request. We see this demand as a fundamental challenge to press freedom in Finland.

Yle publishes several reports yearly, where the company tells more about it's business during the year in question. In the report it reveals for instance more about Yles economic state, and how it uses the funds it's given by the finns, about it's meaning to the Finnish people and Yles position in the media field. It also accounts for how it's obligations by law have been fulfilled during the year in question.
