The case in question revolves around the issue of product development loans and grants. The total worth of these financial aids is a substantial sum, exceeding six million euros. These funds were intended to foster innovation and development in the product sector.
The prosecutor is demanding a firm sentence for Uros Jyrki Hallikainen and To Tommi Uhar, the founders of technology company Uros. The charges against them are severe, as they stand accused of aggravated aid fraud. The trial proceedings have begun today at the Oulu district court.
The case is centered around loans and grants for product development that were given out in the 2010s. The total sum of these funds was more than six million euros. The funds were granted by Business Finland to the now bankrupt technology company Uros. The prosecutor claims that Hallikainen and Uhari provided Business Finland with misleading information and also intentionally failed to disclose important details.
It is important to note that the police have previously stated that the suspects have denied any wrongdoing during the preliminary investigation into the charges against them.
