Juha Molari, opponent of website "Kavkaz-Centre", interrogated in Finland
Today the Finnish police have questioned Pastor Juha Molari, who had openly criticized the work of the website "Kavkaz-Centre", which is supporting the activities of Caucasian separatists.
"Molari was fingerprinted and photographed; he listened to a threat that his computers may be confiscated and a demand to keep silent about everything to avoid 'consequences'," said Johan Backman, a human rights defender and Chairman of the Anti-Fascist Committee of Finland.
According to his story, "the police believe that Molari allegedly threatened and insulted Jukka Mollinen, an activist of the "Kavkaz-Centre" and former Chairman of the PEN-Club of Finland, who had filed a lawsuit against Juha Molari."
Pastor Molari had repeatedly demanded to stop the website for propaganda of terrorism; and in October 2010 he addressed law enforcement bodies with a demand to stop the website and to consider the threats addressed to him. However, the police found the demand to stop the website as ungrounded and refused to initiate a case on the threats against the Pastor, the "Interfax" reports.
