Birna murder case soon back to court
Thomas Møller Olsen, who was sentenced to nineteen years imprisonment for the murder of Birna Brjánsdóttir in January last year and for a narcotics offence will be appearing before the Icelandic national court to whom he appealed the case.
His defendant has demanded that a new statement be made of Møller Olsen. He will also be trying on a parka which was found bloody in the Polar Nanoq fishing trawler. Møller Olsen wishes to try the parka on before the court to see if it is his or not. The parka is a size medium but Møller Olsen weighed 94 kilos and measured 184 cm in height when he was arrested.
A date for the principal proceedings will be decided at a later date.
