Bára Halldórsdóttir, the whistle-blower who recorded six MPs talking loudly and abusively at a Reykjavík bar, is now being assisted by lawyers following news that four of the politicians want to sue her.

Auður Tinna Aðalbjarnardóttir and Ragnar Aðalsteinsson from the Réttur solicitors are now helping Bára with her case. 

Bára has been called in to the Reykjavík District Court next week, she was informed in a letter two days ago. Head judge Símon Sigvaldsson told RÚV she has been summoned in order to make sure she knows a case is being built against her, that it could go to court, and that she may want to hire a lawyer. 

At next week’s session, Bára will not be asked to make a witness statement as had previously been reported.
