Judicial System in Finland
The judicial administration provides legal security. Legal security is a fundamental right of the people. Under the Constitution of Finland, everyone is entitled to have his or her case heard by a court or an authority appropriately and without undue delay.
In addition, under the Constitution, everyone is entitled to have a decision affecting his or her rights or obligations reviewed by a court or another judicial authority. The Constitution also contains a fundamental provision on the guarantees of a fair trial and good public administration. Some of the most important guarantees are the openness of proceedings, the right to be heard, the right to receive a reasoned decision and the right to appeal against the decision.
The judicial administration consists of the independent courts of law, the prosecution service, the enforcement authorities, who see to the enforcement of judgments, the Criminal Sanctions Agency, who sees to the enforcement of custodial sentences, the Bar Association and the other avenues of legal aid.
In Finland, the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for the guidance and supervision of the police.
