Six people, including two former HBOS bankers, have been found guilty of bribery and fraud that cost the bank’s business customers and shareholders hundreds of millions of pounds.Lynden Scourfield, a former manager with HBOS, pleaded guilty to six counts including corruption.Five other defendants, including so-called turnaround consultants, were also convicted.In exchange for bribes, Scourfield told customers to use the turnaround firm.Mark Dobson, who was also a manager at HBOS, David Mills, and Michael Bancroft, were convicted at Southwark Crown Court on counts including bribery, fraud and money laundering.Alison Mills, and John Cartwright were also convicted for their parts in the conspiracy while one other defendant, Jonathan Cohen, was acquitted.Scourfield had been convicted after pleading guilty at an earlier trial last year.The five newly convicted people will be sentenced on Thursday.The CPS special prosecutor, Stephen Rowland, said the case was one of the largest and most complex the special fraud division had ever prosecuted.”It involved millions of documents, a lot of the material we had to look at was electronic and of course in this day and age the capacity for electronic media is huge,” he said.
