Earlier, the EFTA Surveillance Authority had indicated that it would answer Iceland by the end of the May. It now seems that this time will be stretched until after the coming weekend.
In my reporting for Ruv in Iceland, I have indicated that to some ESA experts the Icelandic answer seemed feeble. I find it unlikely that ESA will be convinced by Iceland’s answer, which I found to be short on legal reasoning and long on beside-the-point arguments. In the end, it matters what the ESA lawyers think. We will know next week.
