As the role of Norwegian bank DNB for its alleged participation in the Samherji cash-for-quotas grabs more attention from both officials and Icelandic media, the whitefish giant continues to butt heads with publications on the details of the case.

On Thursday, Samherji released a statement stating that "Samherji does not own and has never owned Cape Cod FS and has never assigned others to 'let' the ownership of the company," calling out Icelandic publications Stundin and RUV for saying otherwise.
