Three judges have unanimously ordered the UK government to publish missing information surrounding the closure of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) in 1991.
After a five-year legal battle, University of Essex accounting professor Prem Sikka has managed to secure a report (codenamed “The Sandstorm Report”) that enabled the government to close the bank.
AccountingWEB members were summoned back in March to provide witness statements for Sikka's freedom of information request.
