Ex-PM Geir Haarde is acquitted by the Court convened by Althingi to judge his ministerial actions related to his actions during 2007 and 2008 – but the majority, 9 out of 15, rule that he broke law on ministerial duty to hold cabinet meetings on important issues. No punishment is given.
The charges were:
(1 A serious omission to fulfil the duties of a prime minister facing a serious danger)
(2 Omitting to take the initiative to do a comprehensive analysis of the risk faced by the state due to danger of a financial shock)*
3 Omitting to ensure that the work of a governmental consultative group on financial stability led to results
4 Omitting to guarantee that the size of the Icelandic banking system would be reduced
