Politicians take care of politicians in Iceland - corruption very good still.
Mr. Halldór Ásgrímsson,former member of parliement ,and also former Prime minister, before the Banking Crash in Iceland.
He and David Oddson,former Prime minister and Central Bank CEO, where together in Goverment for many years .
They where the maine builders of the financial system in Iceland,that led up to the banking crash in 2008.
Mr. Halldor Asgrimsson,quit goverment job,and whent on to be Secretary General for the Nordic Council of Ministers january 1. 2007.
He owns a part with his family,a fishing company.
Few weeks ago that company got 2.6 billion kronas loans written of,and at the same time it payd over 600 million kronas in profits to its shareholders.
And now he works for the Iceland Goverment as Secretary General for the Nordic Council of Ministers.
This week Iceland goverment wanted him to stay at that job .
The public is angry ,after al that has happened ,that the man who was one of the ringleaders in the Icelandic financial system,that collapsed in 2008, is still in high places at in the Icelandic goverment.
Few weeks ago a lady protested him at Landsbanki in Reykjavik , you can see that here
