Two television interviews

Below are two television interviews with Professor Hannes H. Gissurarson, RNH Academic Director, on his new book, Landsdómsmálið, The Impeachment Process Against Former Prime Minister Geir H. Haarde, which was, the author argues, a travesty of justice even if Haarde was acquitted of all real charges, and only convicted for the alleged negligence of not putting the impending bank collapse on the agenda of cabinet meetings. Six of the fifteen judges wanted to acquit him also of that charge which was, they said, based on a misinterpretation of the Icelandic Constitution. Egill Helgason interviews Gissurarson on the National Broadcasting Service (the government television station) and Sigmundur Ernir Runarsson interviews him on Hringbraut, a private television station.
