Baugur verdict rendered tomorrow

By Iceland Review

Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, RÚV, reports that the verdict in 8 of the 40 charges originally filed against several Baugur managers, including its current and former CEO’s, will be rendered tomorrow at the District Court of Reykjavík.

Tomorrow, the National Police of Iceland will start taking depositions relating to the 32 remaining charges which were dismissed by the District and Supreme Courts on technical grounds.

The special prosecutor, Sigurdur Tomas Magnusson, is “working hard” reviewing the 32 dismissed charges for the purpose of evaluating whether or not they should be resubmitted.

One material change concerns the position of Jón Gerald Sullenberger, but his complaints to the Icelandic police prompted the original investigation. Jón Gerald’s status has changed from being a witness to being a suspect which enables the prosecutor to file charges against Jón Gerald at the prosecutor so chooses.

Jón Gerald, who lives in the US, said to RÚV, that he had only been asked to confirm his prior testimony to the police.

The names of other parties called in for depositions are not known.
