Fishrot – Updates from Namibia, Iceland and Norway
Shinovene Immanuel Helgi Seljan Heidi Augestad Opsahl

The financial scandal, named after a 2019 Wikileaks release called the "Fishrot Files", involves government ministers in Namibia, business leaders in Iceland, as well a Norwegian bank. Almost 4 years after the story broke, the criminal cases against several government ministers and other prominent figures are about to start in Windhoek. The investigation in Iceland is still ongoing and several current or former Samherji employees have the status as suspects in the case. In Norway, Økokrim started a criminal investigation of DNB's role. However, the criminal investigation was closed by a public prosecutor in 2021, and the case was transferred to the Financial Supervisory Authority. 

The Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority will also provide information on how the case was handled in Norway.
