Jari Aarnio, the chief of the Helsinki Police Department's drug squad, is suspected of leaking the identity of a police informant to a third party in 2009. In addition, he is believed to have revealed details of an undercover operation to a third party. With the period of the statute of limitations for the suspected offence set to expire next month, the prosecution has asked the District Court of Helsinki to extend the period.
