Minister of Parliament Anna Kontula (Left Alliance) has spoken out on illegally assisting undocumented immigrants seeking to avoid deportation. According to her, in some situations the letter of the law does not always equate to justice.
The Left Alliance MP from Tampere discussed the issue as part of Pori’s Finland Arena event in western Finland.
MTV3 was first to report on her statement that the act of hiding paperless persons is morally defensible, even if the actions themselves may be contrary to the law.
Kontula says that Minister of the Interior Päivi Räsänen (Christian Democrats) is of the same mind, in that they both believe that law and justice are not always the same thing.
