Crown Office confirms probe into Scottish banking sector

According to this article the authorities in Scotland appear to be looking into the possibility of taking bankers to court for their crimes.

The politicians in England are floundering around talking about making up new laws to deal with bankers, but of course those would only apply to crimes committed after the laws are created and couldn't be applied to any banker who has done something wrong up to now. So they would get off.

However if this article is correct it may be that the same bankers could be tried in Scotland under common law of fraud which has always existed here.

Fingers crossed eh ?

They've got to move further up the line and get those who CONTROL the banks, thats where the real crime is.

But still good news

As much as I'd like to see the bankers get punished, I'm just glad we're taking action now and that in the future they're able to face criminal charges for their wrongdoings.

At least we're heading in the right direction?

Total world revolution? Where you looking


Yes this is a big step forward but this doesn't shift much power out of their hands, they still control the money.

Ha Lockerbie .... well the guy is now dead so McAskill was right and I for one thought it was the right decision.

The problem is if any jailed bankers fein illness they might get released early

It was entirely the wrong decision. He should have coughed his last breath alone in a bare hospital ward smelling of piss and disinfectant.

Instead he got to see his family again.

All kinds of wrong.

The scottish parliament is a lower league for crooks not smart enough to make it at national parliament level. Don't hold your breath.

Fortunately in Scotland we have a much more compassionate outlook than many other countries.

For this reason we have a law which says that if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness whilst in jail you can be released on compassionate grounds.

Personally I'm very proud of our legal system and I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't agree with it.

As a scot I wasn't aware thats how it worked until this particular case. It made me mad then and it still does now to think about it.

The men women and children that fell screaming 20,000ft to their death didn't get a chance to say goodbye to their loved ones at the end so the perpetrator shouldn't either.

The law should be changed.

But it is not automatic. It still requires an assessment by the authorities. Surely the balance between the nature of the crime, extenuating circumstances and the grief still felt by the victims should be weighed up. In this case they got the balance wrong........you may have noticed !

Based on compassionate grounds ?

Nothing to do with this then :-

Guardian

Or this :- Telegraph

I also remember something kicking off regarding lobbying and BP but cant find any info on it.

If Scotland becomes independent, all other nations can send their criminal bankers for trial here as we seem to be one of only few countries who apparently have a "sensible" law system that allows thieves and fraudsters to be tried irrespective of their position in commerce. The Rothchilds clearly don't have such a strong hold on Scotland as i once thought - Maybe they were scared of us after watching Braveheart - Or am i just wishing???

I couldn't agree more. I too felt it was the right decision and IMHO it shows how "more civilised" the Scottish law system is. Yes Megrahy (spelling) killed many people (jury is still way out in my opinion - research it) but compassion is something that is missing in this world ad to try and victimise the Scottish government over a choice that was based solely on compassion merits applause IMO. Cameron was using the mixed opinion to his political advantage and it clearly worked on many of you. Scotland didn't do it for political gain, they did it because its part of our legal system and policies. Standing in the face of adversity - Well-done Scotland!

Are you aware of how many holes are in the official investigation into the bombings? Its as "holey" as the 9-11 conspiracies. I may one day do a big thread on it but it most certainly wasn't the full work of Megrahi, there were other accomplices. The law needed someone to pin it on and he was the one...there were many others who weren't pursued.

Ignore what the politicians in England are doing.

SOCA are investigating the financial sector, the politicians are irrelevent. Similar in the USA, with the FBI starting investigations. This is so big it will not be swept under the carpet.
