Ásgeir Margeirsson, CEO of Magma Energy in Iceland, said that he trusts that the newly appointed committee, investigating the legitimacy of Magma Energy’s recent purchase of shares in the Icelandic energy company HS Orka, is comprised of professionals.
Ásgeir says in a conversation with Pressan that he has nothing to say about the individuals, but acknowledges that the investigation has been a slight inconvenience for the company:
“I do not plan to express myself about any individuals in the committee. I have no particular opinion about those sitting in this committee.”
Hjördís Hákonardóttir, previous Supreme Court judge, will lead the committee. Other members include Bjarnveig Eiríksdóttir, district attorney and LL.M in European Law and International Business Law; Sveinn Margeirsson, doctor industrial engineering; Ólafur Páll Jónsson, associate professor in Philosophy at the University of Iceland; and Aagost Óskardóttir, attorney. The advising committee is Traustur Fannar Valsson, associate professor in public administration at the University of Iceland. The committee will continue to expand, with room for scholars who can assist them in their investigation.
