1. MEASURE IMPLEMENTATION

Финландия

Is this measure possible in your Member State under International Judicial Cooperation?

Yes. Letters and other postal shipments in the possession of the service provider intended for, or sent by, a suspect may be seized with respect to certain offences, provided that those shipments could be subject to seizure from the suspect. An object or a document may be seized upon request of a foreign state if they may serve as evidence in a criminal case there, or if they have been taken from someone through an offence. An object may also be seized if it has been confiscated or is likely to be confiscated by a criminal court of a foreign state. Restrictions on account of legal privilege and confidentiality apply.
