Banker, disclosure of information by


A banker must not normally disclose information on customers account. He may do so: (1) if the court orders him to do so; (2) if it is a matter of public duty; (3) if it is to protect his own interests; (4) if the customer has given express or implied authority to do so (this could be by giving the bank as a referee); (5) if the auditors request details of a client's account(s) in course of an audit and the client has agreed to it.
