Nearly 10 tents appeared near the Linnanmaki amusement park in Helsinki.
According to the publication Ilta-Sanomat, the city authorities already know about the place, which was chosen by visitors. On Tuesday, June 27, inspectors from the city hall visited the gypsy camp to check.
Officials insist that the setting up a tent camp should be coordinated, although the law does not regulate it in any way. Nevertheless, the mayor's office indicates that they need to ensure the safety of the camp and appropriate maintenance of the territory, for example, garbage removal. If the camp will interfere with the residents, it will be liquidated, the inspectors warned.
It should be reminded, that the question of the legality of tent camps in the Finnish capital was discussed back in February, when refugees and their opponents set up tents in the city center. Lawyers of the administration insist on the necessity of filing applications, although the legislation of the republic does not prohibit free expression of opinion, including through multi-day demonstrations.
