The lawyer further argued that the decision by the bank employee to disclose confidential information to third parties and failure to maintain the secrecy of his accounts by sharing his financial statements with strangers infringed on his right to privacy and amounts to a breach of its common law of fiduciary duty.

He has further argued that efforts to save his transport business by requesting the bank to restructure its loan obligations were ignored and resulted in financial sabotage.

“The defendant’s employees began demanding kickbacks and other incentives prior to approving or disbursing loans and failure to take action upon lodging complaints of leakage of confidential information,” he noted.
