A man convicted April 26 for stabbing his girlfriend in Húsavík, northeast Iceland, last November, has not yet begun serving his sentence because a document confirming his guilt appears to be lost.
“We haven’t received it,” Prison Authority director Erlendur Baldursson told Fréttabladid. The document was sent to the Authority by the Húsavík police at the end of June.
The indicted man lives in Húsavík and has been in therapy since his conviction thus the Prison Authority did not prioritize imprisoning him.
However, he recently stopped going to therapy without notifying the the Authority, which means the Authority will now prioritize his case, with or without the lost document.
