Reykjavík 9 Will Not Appeal

By Iceland Review

The case of the so-called Reykjavík 9, who were accused of attacking the Icelandic parliament, Althingi, during the post-collapse protests, has ended before the courts.

None of the four individuals found guilty of minor violations at Reykjavík District Court—all nine were acquitted of the main charge of attacking Althingi—appealed the verdict to the Supreme Court before the extension expired, reports.

Two of the defendants were given probational prison sentences for rioting and the other two were made to pay fines for having participated in the riots.

The acting prosecutor in the case of the Reykjavík 9, Lára V. Júlíusdóttir, announced last week that she wouldn’t appeal the verdict either.
