The district court considered the extreme measures and Kiwimaki's approach too reckless. Taking these factors into account, the appropriate sentence would have been six years and seven months.

It's about a data breach at a psychotherapy center called Vastamo, where the sensitive information of around 33,000 people ended up in the wrong hands. They tried to extort money from the victims on the grounds that otherwise the information would be revealed. Eventually, the data was uploaded to the dark Tor network.

In 2020, this extortion money was confiscated.

Mispurchase and Ylilauta discussions

According to the district court, no evidence proved that Kiwimaki was the perpetrator of the crimes. On the other hand, no evidence excludes Kiwimaki's guilt.

The district court found that Kiwimaki used more of the server than it admitted to committing the crimes. Kivimäki used a browser key and an IP address associated with the crime scene.

– It is also worth noting that the server complex involved in the criminal activity is related to the operations of a company partially owned by Kiwimaki, and the company's business idea is also related to the way the criminal complex was made. The District Court ruled.

Among other things, the court pointed out that the bogus purchases made by the Central Crime Branch Police (KRP) had, in its preliminary investigation, “shown with high probability that they had reached Kiwimaki's bank account”.

The court also enlisted Kivimegi's Yillauta writing as evidence.

Kiwimaki has since been remanded in custody. An exception.

Kiwimaki disappeared briefly during the trial and the district court released him from pre-trial detention. An appeals court overturned the acquittal at the request of prosecutors, but Kiwimegi did not immediately return to prison.

At the end of a week-long escape, police caught Kivimäki in a private apartment in Helsinki.
