Finnish pilot Eino Luukkanen's trail


I have inquired about this matter on other fourms and have been directed to the Virtual Pilots website. On that site there is an article that discusses the court marshal of the third highest scoring Finnish fighter pilot of WW2 Eino Luukkanen; however, the details of the incident are very vague. I was hoping someone could shed some light on the subject such as:

Date of trail
Details of the charges and on what grounds the charges were brought (the investigation)
Who was involved (I know there was supposedly 3 people charged)
Outcome of the trail (what punishment was handed out and why)
A summary of the situation (I know some type of photos were given to some agents, possibly alcohol was involved, charges were brought, etc)

This whole situation is perplexing to me and I would like to understand more about this unfortunate incident that brought the career of an otherwise great pilot to a premature end.

Thanks in advance,
