the Helsinki police announced on Wednesday that it allows neo-nazis on independence day demonstration in Helsinki. The police justify the line through, inter alia, that racism does not enjoy freedom of assembly, the freedom of expression and freedom of association for the constitution and international treaties guarantee protection.
Helsinki constitutional law professor Tuomas Ojanen look at that police line is entirely correct. According to him, it is not the police authority or right, but the obligation to intervene.
– Public authorities, in practice the police have international agreements and the constitution in the light of the obligation to actively combat such activities, which is an open racist and violent, and seeks our legal system contrary to the fundamental principles of the goals. It's not about whether the organization disbanded and its demonstration language, but rather, is the constitution and human rights treaties in terms of orders addressing such activities, Ojanen says.
freedom of Assembly and association are fundamental and human rights, i.e. they have a particularly strong protection, which according to police is complicated intervention.
Ojanen said that freedom of assembly and association are basic and human rights not absolute, but they can be, for example, freedom of expression and the protection of private life in a way, under certain conditions, to limit.
– There are only a few such fundamental and human rights, which are in all circumstances an absolute and inviolable. We are talking, for example, the death penalty, torture, slavery and forced labour prohibition.Several protests on independence day in Helsinki
