Geir Haarde, Iceland's former PM, to be tried in historic first session of the Landsdomur
In January of 2009 Geir Haarde pulled out of Iceland's coalition government and by April Haarde admitted taking millions in "controversial donations" from the investment group FL Group and Icelandic bank Landsbanki. On Sept. 28 Iceland's Althing, most similar to parliament, voted to indict Geir on charges of negligence and try him before the Landsdomur. This will be the first meeting of the Landsdomur since its creation in the Icelandic Constitution in 1905. If Iceland can hold their government officials accountable, shouldn't the United States?
