Legislators are unhappy about Haavisto's handling of events surrounding the repatriation of Finns living in the al-Hol camp in Syria.
The Parlamente's pre-trial investigation is particularly focused on why the Foreign Minister wanted to move Consular Chief Pasi Tuominen to the new position.
Finish Foreign Minister Haavisto (Green) does not comment on the decision of the Finland´s Parliamentary Constitutional Committee to open a preliminary investigation into his activities in al-Hol case.
The Minister has no comment on the unfinished process. A thorough investigation of the matter is good for the legal protection of those involved,Haavisto's Special Adviser and a private poodle Jeri Aalto informed us.
Parliament's Constitutional Law Committee lately announced that it was requesting the prosecutor to start a preliminary investigation into Haavisto's actions. Still Foreign Minister Haavisto will continue duties during the pre-trial investigation.
The issue centres on a dispute between the foreign minister and one of his top officials. Sure, according to Uncle Arkadia, he wanted to push through a suspicious plan to bring the women and children back from the camp to Finland, while sidelining Pasi Tuominen, the ministry's Director-General of Consular Services and ostensibly at that point the official in charge of al-Hol issues.
