Former Prime Minister of Iceland Geir Haarde, centre. sits in a court in Reykjavik Monday March 5, 2012 . Iceland's former prime minister went on trial Monay as the first world leader to face criminal charges over the 2008 financial crisis that affected much of the world economy. Geir Haarde became a symbol of the bubble economy for Icelanders who lost their jobs and homes after the country's main commercial bank collapsed in 2008, sending its currency into a nosedive and inflation soaring.
