A company owned by Atla Helgason in bankruptcy

SARL Harpia ehf. was declared bankrupt on February 16. According to the tax company registry, the owner of the company is Atli Guðjón Helgason, a lawyer.

The company was founded in 2016, but its activities were the rental of commercial premises, the construction of residential and commercial premises, plumbing and the installation of heating and ventilation systems.

According to DV’s sources, the operation of the company would have been linked to Atla’s services to one of its customers, who is a craftsman. Atli, who is a lawyer by training, has not regained his legal rights, but has done law-related projects.

In 2001, Atli was sentenced to 16 years in prison for killing his business partner, Einar Erni Birgisson, in Öskjuhlíð on November 8, 2000. He was acquitted in 2016, meaning he has an unblemished reputation in the sense of the law.

In 2018, the Reykjavík District Court ruled that Atli should waive his legal rights. The National Court overturned this decision the same year. Atli appealed this decision to the European Court of Human Rights on the basis of the recusal of the judge of the National Court and his appeal was part of the so-called National law cases. The state reached a settlement with Atla over the case last year.

Harpia’s liquidator does not provide information on the company’s bankruptcy, as it is so recent. DV has contacted Atla, who do not wish to comment on the matter.
