The group has ties to the outlawed neo-Nazi group Nordic Resistance Movement, says an expert on far-right movements. The city of Jyväskylä has cancelled an event by a far-right group that was to have taken place on Saturday at a municipal sports facility in the Kuokkala district. “On Friday afternoon we received anonymous tip-offs about the event. We looked into them and decided that the reservation had to be cancelled,” said Heli Leinonkoski, Administrative Director of the south-central city. She says officials determined that the organisation’s activities were not in line with the city’s values, declining to provide further details. “The basic premise is that all events organised at city facilities must be in accordance with laws, general morality and the city’s values,” she told Yle. According to researcher Tommi Kotonen, the group, which calls itself Veren laki (“Law of Blood”), has clear links to the outlawed neo-Nazi organisation Nordic Resistance Movement or PVL. Finland’s Supreme Court banned the PVL’s activities in early 2019 after it was linked to a string of violent incidents.
