In this Spotlight article, Professor Avinash Persaud considers the UK Government’s amendments to the Banking Reform Bill, which support the recommendations by the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, to introduce a new criminal offence of reckless misconduct in the management of a bank. He argues the proposals are well-intentioned but incoherent, they risk perversions of natural justice and are based around the false notion that financial crashes are caused by individual malfeasance.
