Iceland shuts down Islamic center

World Bulletin / News Desk

A recent ruling from Reykjavík District Court concluded that the Islamic Cultural Center of Iceland (ICCI) had no existing rental contract for the building that it was currently occupying 

The Islamic center had appealed the decision based on missed findings based on their Facebook page claiming mistakes were made at every step against the mosque in the ruling. The evicition notice was dated May 17th  and was delivered on May 26 but with a false date of delivery on the notice claiming it was sent on the 24th. 

In addition, the ICCI also stated on their Facebook page that the former head of ICCI, Karim Askari, had forged their rental contract to be dated two years earlier, shortly before he was voted out of his position in 2014. Reykjavík District Court found no evidence of forgery, and thus ruled that the contract had expired.
