Yet Feuerhahn believes that Loftsson and his company should be held accountable for their actions.
“Obviously, these people are trying to cover this up now, and if this is a blue whale ... this could actually be the tipping point for Kristján Loftsson,” Feuerhahn said. “So I think it’s very important to keep the pressure up now, and to pressure the Icelandic authorities.”
Feuerhahn is encouraged by the international response to this incident, but he believes it should be the Icelandic people themselves who foster change.
“Despite the international rage about this … I believe after working on this for five years now, that this is an Icelandic issue, and it’s most productive and important that Iceland speak out about it,” Feuerhahn said. “That’s why we’ve been working with Icelanders to bring this to [people’s] attention and to oppose this, because we know that many people in Iceland are opposed to the business of Kristján Loftsson.”
