Attorney General John Larkin QC said there was evidence of “criminal fraud under the 2006 Act” and that the matter has now been drawn to the attention of the police
Northern Ireland’s Attorney General has accused Bank of Scotland of “criminal fraud”.
John Larkin QC made the comments in relation to the bank’s treatment of some customers who fell behind on their mortgages.

The bank had appealed the verdict of the earlier court hearing but dropped that appeal on Monday morning.
