Ex-Premier Faces Charges for Iceland's Fiscal Woes.
The formal indictment against Mr. Haarde, delivered by a sharply divided Parliament, charges him with violations committed from February 2008 through the beginning of October of the same year, by intent or gross neglect, mostly violations against the laws of ministerial responsibility. He showed, it continues, serious nonfeasance of his duties as prime minister in the face of major danger looming over Icelandic financial institutions and the state treasury.

His great sin was one of omission, said Atli Gislason, a member of the Left-Green Party in Parliament and the leader of the commission that prepared the case against Mr. Haarde.

The wrong thing he did was to do nothing, Mr. Gislason said. He just did nothing.
