Icelanders Have Faith in Eva Joly

Approximately 67 percent of respondents in a new survey by MMR (Market and Media Research) trust Norwegian-French magistrate Eva Joly, who serves as a consultant to the special prosecutor’s office, responsible for investigating the banking collapse.

More than 50 percent of respondents also said they trusted the special prosecutor, Ólafur Thór Hauksson. However, only 36 percent of respondents trust the Attorney General and 27 percent the Althingi parliament’s Investigation Committee, reports.

Another recent MMR survey revealed that 78 percent of respondents trust the Icelandic Coast Guard, 47 percent the Commissioner of the Icelandic Police, 42 percent the State Prison Administration and only 23 percent the Directorate of Immigration—26 percent said they distrusted the directorate.
