Finland proposes law that will jail men who send unsolicited 'd**k pics


Men who send unrequested 'd**k pics' could be jailed for up to six months under new laws being proposed in Finland-Mail Online reports.

Ministers want to amend the country's sexual harassment laws to include sending explicit images, along with verbal and text harassment.



Under current Finnish law, an offence is only considered to be sexual harassment if it involves physical touching.

Some offenders who send explicit photos have been prosecuted under the country's defamation laws.

However, campaigners have been asking for the law to be changed because it does not take into account the sexual nature of the crime.

Sami Kiriakos, from Finland's justice ministry, said the new law could be submitted 'sometime next year' before being put before parliament for a vote.
