Four Bankers in Iceland Sentenced to Jail for the FRAUD they committed. Including the Chairman of the Bank.



If this would happen all over the world, we would be in much better shape!

Iceland's court sentenced four bankers to jail, including the Chairman of Kaupthing Bank. 

Obviously Iceland's courts are not as corrupt as the rest of the world's courts.  The U.S. has never considered jailing Corzine (MF Global), besides all the other top Wall Street bankers.  But the fact that Iceland has jailed bankers, shows all is not lost.  It is up to all of us to continue trying to get people to wake up.    

Article:

In a landmark ruling, Reykjavík District Court sentenced four former executives of Kaupthing Bank to between 3 and 5 1/2 years in prison for financial crimes dating back to 2008.

Vísir reports that former Kaupthing director Hreiðar Már Sigurðsson received the heaviest sentence: five and a half years, minus time already spent in custody. He was also sentenced to pay 33.4 million ISK in legal fees.

Former Kaupthing chairperson - and former Interpol fugitive - Sigurður Einarsson was sentenced to five years, and a total of 14.3 million ISK in legal fees.

Investor Ólafur Ólafsson was sentenced to three and a half years, and 20.6 million ISK in legal fees.

Former director of the Luxemborg branch of Kaupthing Magnús Guðmundsson was sentenced to three years in prison.

In the court's opinion, the four conspired to conceal the fact that one of the investors in Kaupthing, Mohammad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, owned his 5.01% stake in the bank thanks to money lent to him by the bank itself.

Investigations into the four go back to the Icelandic bank crash of autumn 2008. In the wake of a report on the contributing causes of the crash from the Special Investigative Commission, the Special Prosecutor’s Office was created. The office targeted many top bank officials from Glitnir and Kaupthing.

Eva Joly, who at one point served as an assistant to the Special Prosecutor, told the Grapevine last year that Iceland should "be proud you invested in these investigations", while cautioning to have patience - investigations were three years along at the time.

The four are expected to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. All of their prison sentences are non-probationary.

  1. If we did that we'd have to build a hundred prisons.

  2. Hitler took the same action Iceland took, and did it for the exact same reasons. Although edited history books never reveal the true story, Hitler placed thousands of Jewish banksters in jail (concentration camps) for committing the same financial frauds and crimes they recently committed in Iceland. And which they continue committing in virtually every Zionist controlled nation today.

  3. Let's hope Iceland doesn't miss the opportunity to prosecute Mr. Al Thani, a family member of Qatar's criminal regime.

  4. And its been the same in just about every land they've infested, back to Joseph in Egypt. The consequences of their criminality have had consistent retaliation, historically thru centuries.
    Jews define it as "persecution for being Chosen" and antisemitism. Never ANY responsibility for their part in why they are so universally despised.

  5. They weren't in the labour camps long as Germany didn't want to pay for their upkeep. In the end they just booted them out and let others deal with them. Hitler, at one time recommended they be put on an island like Madagascar and to be monitored by the U.N. It wasn't just Hitler either, they have been kicked out off nearly every country on the planet at one time or another. I think the count to date is around 115 countries.

  6. Blaming the Jews is quite an ignorant view. You don't have to be Jewish to be corrupt. It is only the weakest and most uninformed that blame any tiny group for the failures of the majority. Are the jailed bankers from Iceland Jews? I don't think there are any Jews in Iceland. It is hard to understand how people still believe that old propaganda in a modern age.
