June 20, 2012

Finland’s government proposed increasing fines on violations of the securities law as part of a legislative overhaul to be approved by parliament as of September, Helsingin Sanomat reported.

Maximum fines on infractions like insider trading are set to become ten-times higher than currently, rising to as much as 100,000 euros for private individuals and as much as 10 million euros ($12.7 million) for companies, the Helsinki-based newspaper said today, citing Finance Ministry official Janne Haeyrynen and Jarmo Parkkinen from the country’s Financial Supervisory Authority.
