Ambassador of Finland, Satu Mattila-Budich, signed today on behalf of Finland an Additional Protocol to the Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism at the annual meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Council of Europe in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The additional protocol addresses the phenomenon of foreign terrorist fighters. It seeks to strengthen measures against terrorism and prevent its negative effects on the full enjoyment of human rights. The protocol criminalizes participating in an association or group for the purpose of terrorism, receiving training for terrorism as well as travelling abroad - and funding and facilitating that kind of travelling - for the purpose of terrorism.
