Three young men urinated on the doors to the Icelandic Prime Ministry and cabinet office on the night leading into the country’s independence day last Thursday.
The public order offence was recorded on CCTV and a police car cruised by while they were still at the scene. Visir.is reports that the boys made a run for it up Hverfisgata, but the police car caught two of them easily. The third escaped.
It is not clear whether criminal charges will be brought against the pair, but a spokesman said the police are taking the crime seriously and they will be fined at the very least.
