Kosar v Bank of Scotland Plc (T/A Halifax): Admn 18 Jan 2011

The claimant appealed against an order which had rejected his claim against the defendant under the 1997 Act on the basis that a company could not commit the offence.
Held: The appeal was allowed. Under the 1978 Act, a ‘person’ included a body corporate unless the contrary was shown. The restriction created by section 7(5) applied only to the victim.
