Alleged fraud against NAB – statement
Statement to be attributed to a NAB spokesperson:
“The alleged fraud was reported by a whistleblower. NAB responded immediately, investigated and reported it to police.
“If the alleged fraud is proven, it represents a most serious breach of trust by a former employee.
“We continue to cooperate fully with police and we thank them for their important work in investigating this matter.
“NAB is the victim in this matter. Police have confirmed that no one at NAB is under investigation, including former CEO Andrew Thorburn, and there is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by anyone at NAB.
“While this remains before the court it is not appropriate for us to comment further.”
