The phenomenon of cyberviolence as such is a new one in Finland. Some online  offences have been a topic of a public discussion but there are no domestic policies, strategies or other specific responses focusing on this issue.

Finland doesn’t have specific provisions regarding online offences/cyberbullying offences either. The coverage of these offences is to some degree unclear but nevertheless it’s possible to say that acts like these are covered by many Criminal Code provisions (offences may be committed also online).
