During his speech about debt relief actions, Sigmundur said that a group of experts tasked with assessing whether a fee could be imposed on financial institutions for the delays in the recalculation of loans had concluded that the fee was not feasible.

The Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA), however, may impose penalties, reports.

Debt relief was a key issue of the parliamentary election in April.
