Samherji whistle-blower, Johannes Stefansson “needed 13 bodyguards”

Police in Namibia are investigating several alleged attempts on the life of Jóhannes Stefánsson, the whistle-blower in the ongoing Samherji corruption and tax evasion case. Jóhannes was a guest on RÚV’s Kastljós programme this week, and the episode is now available with English subtitles (see below).
Jóhannes left Samherji in July 2016 and was in possession of a computer containing a large amount of data on the company and its activities.
He says that strange things started happening as soon as he left the company, and that people started showing his computer an unusual amount of interest.  He told Kastljós he feels fortunate to have been surrounded by good people who advised him to hire protection, as his life was in danger.   
On two occasions, security appraisals revealed he needed as many as 13 bodyguards to protect his safety. Attempts to poison his food and drink were made on more than one occasion. The Namibian police reportedly have a good idea who was behind the attacks and the methods they used.
