As the Covid outbreak swept through the community and strict gathering restrictions were in effect, the so-called trio received serious threats from people who disliked the gathering restrictions. This is revealed in the documentary series A storm that RÚV has been showing these last Sunday evenings.
The newspaper sums it all up, but Víðir and Þórólf said on the show that they feared, among other things, being shot through the kitchen window at home. The trio’s homes were monitored and a system was installed there, directly linked to the police. Among other things, Þórólf says that once he was woken up in the middle of the night by a police call and there were special forces with shotguns and flashlights in the garden.
Þórólf showed an example of lewd and threatening messages he received via Facebook Messenger:
“Muddy to unlock gyms”
“You are now more disgusting, don’t think you are the best Iceland has to offer right now. All you say is now more mud fkn.”
“You fucking gay leather trash can. kill yourself All I want is to go skiing.”
Þórólf then reports that his phone number as well as the address and names of his sons appeared with the following message:
“Motherfucker. How do you think you’re shutting down the country, you little shit? Put it on the box the forty-six want to hit you.”
Þórólf’s wife, Sára Hafsteinsdóttir, was interviewed, who explains that she received very tiring calls on her home phone because of Þórólf’s work. She constantly had to explain to people that she did not work for the National Health Service and could not release people from quarantine. It ended with the phone being canceled.
