BOI employees won’t have to testify at OneCoin trial
As per an agreement reached between the DOJ and Bank of Ireland, several employees will no longer testify at Mark Scott’s OneCoin trial.
Details of the agreement haven’t been made public. All the DOJ has revealed is that in light of the agreement, BOI employee testimony is no longer required.
From a procedural standpoint this makes the DOJ’s CCTV motion moot. It hasn’t been designated as such by the court yet but is expected to be early this coming week.
