“Oh, you got it all…wrong, Johnny boy” – MMR overturns controversial dismissal of Kvf’s news editor

The Ministry of Culture (Mentamálaráðið, MMR) has ruled in favor of Ms. Liljan Weihe’s appeal against the decision to dismiss her, following allegations of disloyal conduct towards Kvf and its management – more specifically towards Kvf’s CEO Mr. Johnny í Grótinum.

Ms. Weihe is now free to return to the position as Kvf’s news editor, taking over from Mr. Heini Gaard, who has been the acting news editor since Ms. Weihe’s dismissal November last year, reports Kvf today.

The Ministry of Culture stated in its verdict that the dismissal of Ms. Weihe was “disproportionate” to her conduct and that Mr. Johnny í Grótinum should have provided Ms. Weihe with a reprimand or warning – or transferred her to a different position at Kringvarp Føroya,  the national broadcasting company of the Faroe Islands.
