HELSINKI — A regional court has extended the detention of two people arrested earlier this month on suspicion of financing terrorism and terror recruitment.
The Helsinki District Court ruled Friday that police may hold the suspects — a 34-year-old man and 28 year-old-woman — for another two weeks while police investigate the case. The court gave no other details.
Last week, intelligence officials said they detained the suspects on Sept. 7 after a sting operation in the Helsinki region, in what are this Nordic country’s first terror-linked arrests.
Police said they also confiscated data and other material evidence in the raids.
