R v Shadrokh-Cigari [1988] Crim LR 465

A bank mistakenly credited £268,000 into a child's account rather than £268. The defendant, the child's guardian, took money out of the account with bank drafts signed by the child.


The defendant was liable for theft as under s.5(1) the bank retained an equitable interest in the drafts and under s.5(4) he was under a legal obligation to return the money received by mistake.
