According to the Icelandic daily Frettabladid, earlier owned by Jon Asgeir Johannesson but now by his wife, Johannesson has been questioned this week by the Office of the Special Prosecutor. He met up there with his solicitor Gestur Jonsson who lead his defence team in the so-called Baugur case, 2005-2008. Johannesson denied any information as to the subjects he was questioned on.

Others who have been called in this week, Katrin Petursdottir a former member of the Glitnir board and Oskar Magnusson an ex-CEO of the insurance company TM, have both said they were asked questions about dealings regarding TM involving Johannesson.

As far as is known this was the first time that Johannesson was called in for questioning by the OSP. In Iceland, Johannesson is generally seen as one of the main players in that part of  Icelandic business activities that came crashing down with the banks in October 2008.
