“I asked security experts to evaluate whether it would be safe for a family with children to move in. Due to the heavy publicity, the situation is such that it would not be reasonable right now," Sipila told public YLE radio, adding that he would support a refugee family in other ways until the situation changed.
He did not specify what kind of security issues he meant, but there have been reports about asylum seekers' accommodations being attacked in various parts of the country.
Last September, Juha Sipila stirred controversy when he said he would make his second home in northern Finland available to refugees from early 2016.
Local media then said that the house in the town of Kempele, could accommodate about 20 people and that this number could eventually be increased.
The Finnish Premier has another residence in Sipoo and also a state-owned apartment in Helsinki.
