Sentencing of total objector Joonas Norrena

Dear Prime Minister,

I am extremely concerned to hear of the recent sentencing of Joonas Norrena, a 20 year-old conscientious objector from Imatra, Finland. Joonas Norrena was sentenced to 179 days of home detention for "refusal of conscription" (asevelvollisuudesta kieltÃytyminen) on 26 November 2012 by Kymenlaakso district court. He had refused to do military service in July 2012 in Vekaranjärvi garrison in Southeastern Finland.

FINLAND: Total objector Topi Louko sentenced to 126 days in prison

Alert:

Topi Louko, a 28-year old total objector from Lempäälä, was sentenced to prison for 126 days for "refusal of civilian service" (siviilipalveluksesta kieltäytyminen) on 9 October 2012. The trial was held in Eastern Uusimaa district court (Itä-Uudenmaan käräjäoikeus) in Porvoo. Louko had refused to continue his civilian service in September 2011.

Topi Louko's refusal is based on reasons of conscience. He sees the conscription system in Finland as an offence against individual freedom and he does not want to serve as part of it.

Niinistö: Conscription remains cornerstone of Finnish Defence

President addresses annual Defence Forces Parade

President Sauli Niinistö emphasised in his first speech as Commander-in-Chief at the annual Finnish Defence Forces Day Parade that universal conscription remains the cornerstone of Finnish national defence.

The President emphasised that tight money must not lead to a situation in which military equipment becomes seriously obsolete.

He also called for thinking on how communities that are losing military garrisons should be supported.
