"A dark cloud over Iceland Today"
Following the release of the #PanamaPapers, Icelanders are urging Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson to resign due to his connection in offshore money laundering. He and his wife are accused of using his offshore company, Wintris, to invest millions of dollars. The amount? 1,000,000,000 Icelandic Krona which is about 8,123,820 USD. He didn’t disclose his interest in Wintris prior to taking office in 2009. Other powerful people have been shown to be in connection to this recent leak including friends of Russian president, Vladimir Putin. As of today, Iceland’s prime minister has declared that he will not resign from office and “walked out” when questioned about Wintris. Also, the Iceland’s finance minister has conveniently missed his flight from Florida to Iceland. Anonymous user(s) in Iceland are taking to Anonygo to express this recent smear in their country’s international reputation.
