Greenland’s Premier Kielsen Criticized in Impartiality Case

Greenland’s Audit Committee criticizes Premier Kim Kielsen in a recent report related to a decision to increase catfish quotas, according to KNR.

Kielsen was involved in the decision to raise catfish quotas while also renting out his own boat to a person participating in catfish fisheries.

The Audit Committee argues Kielsen should have informed the self-rule government about impartiality considerations prior to its processing the case, and also criticizes the fact that there appears not to have been any such considerations prior to the processing of the case.

The parliamentary assembly in Greenland, the Inatsisartut, is the formal recipient of the Audit Committee’s report and is to decide whether the findings in the report should have any formal consequences.
