Episode 048 : Europositron
06.14.2019 - By True Crime Finland
*I apologize in advance for any echo in this episode - I had to record in an empty apartment as we moved this week*
On the 29th of October in 2007, inventor Rainer Partanen was arrested suspected of aggravated fraud. In total, 270 Finnish and foreign investors had put over 1,3 million euros of their money into the company that was claiming to revolutionize how batteries were made. But the police were now saying the invention did not exist. How exactly did we get here?
We are putting together a true crime event for the first time here in Finland. It will take place in Hanasaari, Helsinki, on the 15th of August this year, 2019. I would be so happy to see you there! Please go to: www.truecrimeevents.fi for tickets and more information.
I will also be going to the True Crime Podcast Festival in Chicago this summer as a registered podcaster. For more information and tickets, please visit www.tcpf2019.com
