Iceland will soon appear before the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) court over the Icesave matter, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs wasted no time finding a legal representative for the country.
As reported, EFTA will be taking Iceland to court for possibly violating Iceland’s treaty with the organisation in allowing Icelanders to withdraw money from Landsbanki in October 2008, but not foreigners.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has now announced that it has chosen Tim Ward QC to be Iceland’s legal council for the trial.
According to his CV, Ward does have experience with regards to EU law, in particular as a litigator in commercial and regulatory matters.
The date for the Icesave trial has as yet not been announced, but is expected to happen some time this year.
