I would think that IF there is a civil liberties association in Finland, they'd have a great case here.
Yes, there are, but what can they do? Nothing. Make some noise. Nothing changes.
BTW. Police can use ANY evidence they gather, regardless of whether or not it was obtained legally. So they can do basically anything they want to. In civilized countries like in USA, if police doesnt follow the law, they case goes sunk. Sure, they can get "penalty" from doing illegal things like inproper raids or wiretapping, but the only penalty what they actually get is just "notification"...and even if they would get some serious penalty from breaking the law, the evidence is still perfectly valid in court.
