Investor 3i sells its shares in the Finnish parent company of Habbo Hotel. The online child's play came under fire after an English documentary showing that Habbo is a pleasant place for pedophiles.

The Finnish games company Sulake has a problem. Two large shareholders have withdrawn their support for the company and sell their shares. At the end of last week, 3i gave up its sixteen percent interest. Earlier that week, Balderton stepped out and is 13.5 percent in his hand. The intended buyers are not known.

Sulake does not deny the allegations of Channel 4 and acted almost immediately. The chat option for members has been set globally. Many children express their support by giving their character a burning candle. The Finns will reward that signal by giving everyone a button once the new moderation systems are in operation. That may take some time.

The boss of the Finns does not want to speak to the media, he says in a short blog post.
