The mainstream daily Helsingin Sanomat reported that the equipment supplier Trevoc is partly owned by an investment company established by a close relative of the ringleader of the United Brotherhood crime gang.
According to the daily, Trevoc sold surveillance equipment to the police, and is partly owned by an investment company set up by the sister of the head of the United Brotherhood.
The daily also reported that the head of the crime group had also maintained a close relationship with accused anti-drug chief Jari Aarnio for a number of years.
The Helsinki District Court took Aarnio and three other men into custody on suspicion of accepting bribes and a conflict of interest. One of the detainees is a petty officer in the Finnish Security Police, Supo.
