Iceland prime minister faces no-confidence vote in scandal

The political future of Iceland's prime minister is in danger because of his reported links to an offshore account in the British Virgin Islands.

Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson faces a vote of no confidence in parliament Monday after news reports linked him and his wife to an account that was created with the help of a Panamanian law firm at the center of a massive tax evasion leak.

The revelation concerns offshore company Wintris Inc., which Gunnlaugsson allegedly set up in 2007 along with his wife Anna Sigurlaug Palsdottir.

The opposition has called for a vote against the center-right government.

Public protests are also scheduled outside parliament.

Gunnlaugsson, the head of the center-right Progressive Party, began his four-year term in 2013, five years after Iceland's financial collapse.
