A regional court in Pirkanmaa, Tampere, Finland, has outlawed the Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL), the yle news agency reported on Thursday.
The racist Neo-Nazi organization has been accused of violent extremism in Finland. The organization has political and organizational links to other extremist organizations in Nordic countries.
The PVL was not a legally registered association, but the police views it as an ideologically driven organization. The Pirkanmaa District Court ordered that it should be disbanded as it was satisfied the organization exhorted followers and members to violent acts. Hence, the group was not entitled to freedom of speech protections as its actions violated the human rights of others.
