Interpol arrest warrant for Sigurdur Einarsson

make a comment

The Office of the Special Prosecutor has asked Interpol to issue an international arrest warrant for Sigurdur Einarsson ex-executive chairman of Kaupthing’s board. After news in Icelandic media that Einarsson was unwilling to come to Iceland where four of the banks ex-managers are imprisoned it’s now clear that the OSP has lost patience with Einarsson. It’s also clear that the OSP is prepared to use all necessary means to secure the interests of the ongoing investigations. Einarsson has lived in London since earlier this decade and is, as far as is known, still living there.

The Interpol website related to Einarsson’s arrest warrant is here. The offences listed are counterfeiting, forgery and fraud.
