Verdicts Disciplinary Committee
Professional ban

A bank employee was handed a 6 months professional ban because the Disciplinary Commission holds him partially responsible for falsifying a letter and filing it as evidence in a civil court case. The falsified letter refers to a supposed meeting between the bank employee and a client during which matters about the client's mortgage were supposedly discusses. Such a meeting never took place. The Disciplinary Commission found that the bank employee falsified and filed the letter for his own personal gain; to win the court case. The employee was fired and his name has been entered into the registry of the Foundation for Banking Ethics Enforcement that is accessible by Dutch banks.
