Finnish court clarifies breast-fondling tariff

€2.5k per feel excessive, judge rules

New hybrid storage solutions

Any reader who's been wondering quite what he or she might be charged for fondling a woman's breasts, will be delighted to learn that it won't be more than €2,500 a pop - in Finland at least.

That's according to a court in Kokkola, which last week jailed for more than a year an unnamed couple in their twenties for "charging a 74-year-old who suffers from dementia a total of €25,500 to enjoy the woman's breasts on 10 occasions", Reuters reports.

Judge Hasse Hakki, said: "Based on general life experience alone, it is indisputably clear that a 25,500 euro charge is disproportionate to the compensation in question."

Wisely, however, the judge decided he would not rule on "the proper financial value of the compensation", leaving fondlees to negotiate their own price based on the quality of their compensations. ®
