Constitutional Law Committee reaches decision on Tuesday
The Constitutional Law Committee of the Finnish Parliament decided on Tuesday to ask for a police investigation into a possible conflict of interest that former Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen (Centre) may have had when he took part in a decision on the distribution of revenues from the state-owned Finnish Slot Machine Association (RAY).
One of the recipients of RAY money was Nuorisosäätiö, a youth housing foundation with close ties to Vanhanen’s Centre Party. The foundation gave a considerable donation to Vanhanen’s presidential election campaign in 2006.
