RBS accused by ex-analyst of damaging his mental health

Pointing Finger

Royal Bank of Scotland was sued by an analyst who said his mental health suffered after his bosses tried to stop him from revealing that a client allegedly falsified a cash-flow statement.

Bloomberg News reports that Aaron Rich said he faced a long-term psychiatric injury after he was prevented from attending a bank committee meeting several years ago, according to his lawyer and a written argument he gave a London employment tribunal last week.

'Attempts were made to have me alter an official report that I wrote exposing how' the client 'had falsified its financial accounts', he said in the document given to the tribunal. 'I was deliberately physically prevented from attending the internal committee. In my pre-arranged absence from the committee, a senior RBS banker presented deliberately misleading information'.

The bank “absolutely resists” Rich’s claims, said Mark Humphreys, a lawyer for RBS.
