Iceland Has Hired An Ex-Cop To Hunt Down The Bankers That Wrecked Its

If you were involved in Icelandic high finance in the runup to the recession, you might want to start watching your back.

That’s because the government has appointed a white collar crime bounty hunter who wants to haul your behind in (alive, to be sure).

LeMonde reporter Charlotte Chabas has a profile of Ólafur Þór Hauksson, a former local police lieutenant whom the Iceland government appointed to track down individuals likely to have helped sink the country’s banking sector during the credit crunch.

Hauksson’s job description, according to PressEurop’s translation of the piece:

    “On one hand, we have to investigate all suspicion of fraud and offences committed before 2009, on the other hand, we bring the lawsuits against the suspects to court ourselves,” Hauksson explains. This is a ‘totally new’ method which allows the investigators to “follow the case” and the judicial system to “know the cases like the back of their hand”. This is indispensable in order “to compete with the well-prepared defence attorneys”.

Hauksson oversees a posse of 100 researchers to help track down outlaws. He’s netted some major convictions since starting in 2009, including the former chief of staff of the country’s finance minister on insider trading charges. Many others await their day in court, Chabas writes.

And he will track you down even if you’ve fled abroad.

    “Searches continue and the team pursues its investigations abroad in the foreign subsidiaries of the Icelandic banks and includes questioning foreigners,” Chabas writes. ” ‘We enjoy full international cooperation,’ stresses Olafur Hauksson.”

Damn, that's pretty nice. It probably won't have the desired effect, and it might just be a sham, but I'm glad something's being done to nail the people who fucked up their economy.

I don't think one little cop is going to get anywhere going against the bankers. If any other countries eventually get their shit together this could get interesting.

True story.

Almost no one in Iceland has the same surname, not even those in the same family, and most that do are unrelated. People in Iceland take their surnames from their father's first name and their gender. For example: "Efsdottir" would be the surname for Efs' daughter, and Luiz's son would be "Luizaosson". Also Iceland only has a population of 318, 000 nearly all of which live in Reykjavik or the cities neigbouring it.
