The Icelandic government has until March 6, 2014 to submit observations, mbl.is reports.
Haarde was last year found guilty in one out of four charges brought against him by the Icelandic parliament Alþingi in the High Court of Iceland (Landsdómur)—for not having fulfilled his obligations according to the 17th article of the Constitution of Iceland. In October last year, he announced that he was taking the case to the European Court of Human Rights.
