Not sure if this is the right section to post. To cut a long story short. Brother has admitted to taking money from a bank account belonging to our late father, whilst father was an invalid. He is now saying he got the card and pin number from our now late mother and as she was his wife she could take the money from his sole bank account. He admits he drove mother to the ATM his words (acting as chauffeur). He has managed to take around Â£25,000 over a period of time. My accountant has made graphs of the withdrawals from 4 bank accounts and deposits into brothers accounts, the similarities smack you in the face! He even took money out of the account the day after dad died! None of this was noticed until I became Power of Attorney for dads affairs. I immediately sought legal advice. I did inform the police but as I had already started legal proceedings they wouldn't do anything. Both parties have now filed their skeleton arguments. I have a barrister he is representing himself. His argument is he had the card holders permission, no way, he hated dad and dad hated him! If he had permission surely dad would have given him POA. In his defence he is saying he had mothers permission to take the money from dads account because she as his wife could use his card and number. Dad never gave anyone these details, when he was hospitalised they found his wallet with the card in. Mum knew the pin number as it was dads birthdate as was her card her birthdate. My brother is bitter because dad left me some money and not him. I have asked if he would mediate and try and sort this without going to court (as advised by my solicitor) but he refuses and ignores my solicitor letters. Does anyone rate his chances of winning in court?
