Sixteen MPs of the Social Democratic Alliance, Bright Future and the Pirate Party submitted a bill in Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, this week on amendments to the law on price consultation in the dairy industry. The current law is being criticized for hindering competition.
Inspired by Iceland, the campaign to promote Iceland as a tourist destination, recently released a new video entitled 'The Ultimate Secret Tour of Iceland.'
Colonel Dag Aamoth, press spokesman for the Norwegian Armed Forces, released a statement yesterday saying that the Norwegian Armed Forced had sold the Icelandic Coast Guard 250 MP5 submachine guns for NOK 625,000.
The word fáviti ( ‘imbecile’) will be omitted from the 222nd article of the general Icelandic penal code if a new bill, currently being drafted, is passed in parliament. Instead “individuals with developmental disability” will be referred to.
