In its judgement issued on the 30th June 2015, the Turku Court of Appeal has dismissed all charges related to the Slovenian export project of 2005–2007. The State Prosecutor had accused four persons of aggravated bribery in relation to the Slovenian project and demanded that a corporate fine be imposed on Patria Land Services Oy. The District Court had previously dismissed all charges. The Court of Appeal raised the amount of legal expenses ordered to be paid by the State of Finland for proceedings in the District Court and obliged the State to reimburse the legal fees of Patria Land Services Oy and other defendants also in the Court of Appeal.
"The Court of Appeal’s decision was as expected. We consider the decision justified, both juridically and in light of the evidence,” says General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer Hanna Kyrki.
