Yesterday there there was a entertainment show on the state tv.
It had been going all winter, and it was a quis show,between towns and cities in Iceland.
And the final was yesterday.
And the winners got prizes,and the price was a flight with Iceland Express airline.
One of the winners was Vilhjálmur Bjarnarsson ,a teacher at a university ,and a private investor.
He refused to accept the prize,becuase it was from Iceland Express,wich is owned by Pálmi Haraldsson, who was prosecuted last week , for getting strange loans from Glitnir Bank.
Vilhjalmur confirmed that he did not accept the prize,and said, "I will not accept something that was stolen  "
