The ongoing free-trade talks between the European Union and the United States roused a heated debate at the Finnish Parliament on Wednesday, after the Left Alliance voiced its opposition to the investment protection scheme believed to be a part of the trade and investment pact. Silvia Modig (Left Alliance) demanded that the talks be abandoned if the pact contains provisions for arbitration and investment protection.
