Capital Area Police are investigating a case concerning damage inflicted on the Reykjavík mayor’s car. The case is “being taken very seriously,” according to a press release police sent to media. Police suspect the damage was caused by a firearm, and the perpetrator was also responsible for bullet holes discovered at the offices of the Social-Democratic Alliance last week (the mayor’s political party).
The car that was damaged was Mayor Dagur B. Eggertson’s family car. RÚV reports that police monitored the mayor’s home last weekend, and reporters suspect the damage to the car was the reason. Sources told media outlet Kjarninn that bullets were found in the mayor’s car, but police refused to confirm the information to Kjarninn reporters.
