Prosecutors considering case against Talvivaara Mining

News |

Police have turned over more than 4000 pages of documents to prosecutors from a preliminary investigation that could lead to charges against Talvivaara Mining for causing serious damage to the environment.

The deadline for presenting the preliminary report to prosecutors was shifted twice because of the massive nature of the inquiry.

Police first began the investigation at their own initiative into possible criminal charges against the company.

Following a major leak from a gypsum waste pond at the company's mine site in November 2012,
Prosecutors will now decide if formal charges will brought, or may order further investigations before making a final decision.
