This is slightly belated, but still fascinating: an interview with Eva Joly on Silfur Egils from May 16, in which she speaks about the arrests of the Kaupthing bankers earlier this month.
I didn’t post it earlier because I was counting on Lára Hanna to post it on her blog. The RÚV website, where the interview originally appears, only keeps material like this for a limited time and in any case, it does not seem to be accessible worldwide.
The interview is here and is the first one on that page.
It came at a very important time for us, because as soon as the arrests were made there was an immediate backlash, with select individuals defending the oligarchs very loudly amidst cries of “witch hunts!” etc. For that reason in particular it was reassuring to hear someone like Mme. Joly, who clearly has experience with these things, speak very matter-of-factly about this sort of reaction and declare it to be “normal” — not to mention express her belief that the Icelandic investigation into the bank collapse is progressing well.
