The dancer, Johanna Tukiainen, contradicted Kanerva, saying the foreign minister had inquired in the messages about what she was wearing under her evening dress.
...Tukiainen, 29, is a member of an erotic dancing group called Dolls and has posed nude in several magazines.She
has apologized for the scandal and said she
has returned the money she
received from Hymy magazine
for the story about the text messages. She
also tried to halt the publication of the messages with a court injunction, but the Helsinki District Court rejected the request Thursday.
Kanerva told police that he
has received death threats because of the scandal, and Tukiainen
told local media she
also has been threatened.
