A former minister Iceland claimed that FBI tried to frame Julian Assange during a mission to Iceland,
Ögmundur Jonasson, who currently serves as a member of the Icelandic Parliament, said US authorities told him in June 2011 that hackers were trying to destroy software systems in the country.
The authorities said there was an ‘imminent attack’ on Iceland’s government databases and that the FBI would send agents to investigate.
Jonasson said he was immediately skeptical of the FBI’s intentions.
