Cops Investigate State Mediator

The National Bureau of Investigation has launched a preliminary investigation into the impartiality of state mediator Juhani Salonius.

The investigation was requested by the Finnish Airline Pilots Association, who wanted to determine whether there was any evidence of bribery in the mediator's handling of the airline pilots’ dispute with their employer.

The investigators were specifically mandated to look at a recent trip to Thailand made by Salonius and his wife, in which they were bumped up from tourist to business class on the return journey.

The request was formally made to police investigators last week. The pilots say they suspect that the employer may have tried to influence the mediator by offering preferential treatment.
