Jóhannesson would not comment to Fréttabladid on this story.

There are actually five ongoing investigations in relation to Glitnir and a number of people have been interrogated in connection with these cases.

Among those who have confirmed being called in for questioning are Katrín Pétursdóttir, a former Glitnir board member, and Óskar Magnússon, former CEO of the insurance company Tryggingamidstödin.
