Icelandic seafood giant Samherji yesterday tendered an apology for the company’s role in the multimillion-dollar fishing scandal, dubbed Fishrot, but it maintains that no criminal offences were committed in Namibia by companies on its behalf or its employees. In a document titled ‘Statement and apology from Samherji’, the company blames whistleblower Johannes Stefansson by saying that its former managing director in Namibia, was the one responsible for the questionable business conduct. A link to Samherji’s full statement and apology is available on our Facebook page.
