Jarmo Oresmaa, a senior inspector at the Regional State Administrative Agency (Avi) for Southern Finland, has dismissed allegations that posts by private bloggers could have prevented the granting of an alcohol licence to a beer and whisky event set to take place in Helsinki in late October. Mikki Nyman, the organiser of the event, told Helsingin Sanomat on Friday that the licence was contingent on the willingness of two bloggers to remove the word whisky from all blog entries referring to the event.

“We haven't intervened in the activities of private individuals. Everyone can write whatever they want,” Oresmaa assured.
