Margrét wrote on her blog yesterday that there is a suspicion that connected companies have sponsored at least one political party in Iceland, thus circumventing the ISK 400,000 (USD 3,300, EUR 2,600) limit per legal entity on political donations, visir.is reports.

She says that it is the responsibility of the Icelandic National Audit Office and political parties to check whether donors are connected or if cross ownership exists.
