My Finnish is hardly perfect, but the letter essentially outlines the Finnish law regarding what is and what isn't money collection activities, and then compares what goes on with fi.wikipedia.org with the relevant Finnish statutes, concluding that the fundraising campaign is in fact a money collection activity and thus needs a permit from the Finnish police. They request that the webmaster of fi.wikipedia.org explains the purpose of the fundraising text, and also furnishes the Finnish National Police Board with information regarding the total sum of money that has been raised through the text, at a date no later than the 21st of February. They also say that additional details may be required. They indicate that it is currently an administrative issue, but that the Police Board has the authority to initiate investigations of criminal wrongdoing if the answers of the webmaster of fi.wikipedia.org are unsatisfactory.
