The human rights organisation Amnesty International has said it is disappointed as to how Finland has reacted to the events in Tibet.
Amnesty Finland’s operation leader Frank Johansson said that he was disappointed that Finland had not raised the Tibet question during the UN’s human rights council’s meeting. Many other UN members have. According to Amnesty Finland, the debate in Finland has varied between two extremes; a total boycott of the Olympic games and the fear of insulting the Chinese authorities.
Amnesty hopes that Finland will demand that a UN inspection group is sent to Tibet to observe the situation. At the current time, Amnesty does not support a boycott of the Peking Olympics games.
