Work in Progress

Good Banks, Bad Banks

Margrét Jónasdóttir, Jakob Halldórsson

The 2008 financial crisis hit Iceland very hard. The three biggest banks went bankrupt and the UK used its anti-terrorism act against the country. People demanded answers. Confused MP‘s prevented sovereign default and launhched investigations. Iceland launched extensive investigation. Some of them led to criminal charges with heavy sentences. This is the story of an experiment in finding financial justice – and in the deep routed search for justice what was the conclusion?
