The man had been accused of sexually violating three people, two fifteen-year-olds and an adult. However, since the cases have become void, they will never find their way to court.

According to a statement from the Church of Iceland, the crimes took place 25 years ago and are therefore void. The accused has not worked steadily on behalf of the church for years. He has been excluded from the church’s operations.
