Cheating Finns?

In round 3,the Jamaicans caused one of the tournament's surprises when they drew their match, 2-2, against Finland. Untitled Russel Porter beat GM Westerinen on board 4. It seems that this little match actually involved a controversy over the "touch move" rule reminiscent of that famous incident between Kasparov and Polgar.

The story is coverd in this item from Nation News of Barbados as well as by The Chess Drum.
