Brought to account

DANISH homeless people are now able to open bank accounts in order to receive their benefits thanks to an initiative from Kommunernes Landsforening, and the umbrella organisation for banks, Finansdanmark.  Until now, it was a case of no address – no bank account.

Russian people smugglers

A RUSSIAN family of three is suspected of smuggling dozens of people to Finland through the Saimaa Canal.

The father and his two children – a grown-up daughter and an underage son – were taken into custody after 17 people were found hiding inside their 12-metre motorboat in June.
