People For Economic Justice
This morning in the High Court in Dublin, two of the founder members of DDI Ben Gilroy and John Squires along with others helping the Freeman family defeated all motions of Bank of Scotland (Ireland) in the long running case of P FREEMAN & ANOR V BANK OF SCOTLAND (IRELAND) LTD & ORS.
Ben and John have been fighting this case in their role with People For Economic Justice, and in Court 16 this morning Mr Justice Gilligan dismissed the motions put by Bank of Scotland, and finally sent the case forward for full trial on the issue of securitisation. The team has been seeking a full trial without success for some time and have been stymied by counter motions by Bank of Scotland. So critical is this case that the Chief Executive Officer of Bank of Scotland had been required to fly from Scotland to be present in Court.
