Credit Union Chairman Banned by FSA

The FSA has made an order prohibiting the Chairman of a credit union from carrying out any regulated activity in respect of credit unions.

This was the result of a property deal whereby the credit union invested in land in a way not permitted by the CUA 1979 and without adequate security or full knowledge on the part of the credit union board or members' meeting of the Chairman's personal financial interest.

For the press release and a link to the full "Final Notice" - the legal document carrying out the decision visit:
