What if police fails to take proper action?

Post by Honest » Wed May 03, 2017 5:08 pm

What are the options if police fails to take action on a simple case? Rikosilmoitus done, police calls the other party, other party accepts the fault but then fails to come to the police station. Does police have powers to take any further action? or what the person who made the rikosilmoitus can do in this case?

The police can pick the other party and force them to come to the police station.

The police is required a make a decision that ends the investigation (I don't know how well they follow this). At least if you press them on it, you should get this decision and can then thing about next steps if the authorities don't push the case.
