This article is about a guy grabbing a bag filled with 1mil MT$, then jumping onto a waiting getaway bike before having a head-on with a car. Doctors think he may not survive.
The woman, her husband and her son had been tailed by the pair on the scooter (it doesn’t say where they were tailed from, but one can assume it’s the bank), and the bag was grabbed from the woman outside a restaurant.
I dunno whats yous peeps does be thinkin’, but this seems to point a finger at someone in the bank. How else would these guys have known that there was a goldmine in the bag?
This happened in South Africa recently, where a bank was ordered to pay after a similar incident, except in this one the robbers got away:
How liable would the bank be in this sort of situation, allowing private information about their customers to be leaked?
From the South African article:
Goodman’s lawyer, Leon Lipchick, argued that the bank had “a duty of care to its customers and, in particular, a duty of confidentiality”.
Lipchick said that the bank was negligent in failing to ensure that its employees, who were in a position of trust, did not pass confidential information to people outside.[/quote]
