Icelander sentenced to three and a half years in prison in Finland – Was a member of a gang of 15

At the end of January, an Icelander was sentenced to three and a half years in prison by a district court in Helsinki, Finland. RÚV report that.
The woman is in her forties. His crime was the large-scale sale of the drug OxyContin, which is essentially a strong opioid painkiller but is often abused as a drug. The Icelandic woman is believed to be part of a gang of fifteen who sold the substance on the city streets. The ringleader was sentenced to five years in prison.
RÚV reports that a police investigation revealed that the material had been smuggled from Estonia to Finland. In Finnish state media coverage of the case, it is said that many of those who took OxyContin lost their jobs, lost their life savings, or had to sell their property to finance consumption.
RÚV spoke to Sveinn H. Guðmarsson, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Information Representative, and he confirmed that the Ministry’s Civil Services had received a request for assistance regarding the case. This request was forwarded to the Icelandic Embassy in Helsinki. It is not excluded that the woman is allowed to serve her sentence in Iceland.
