Ex-wife of jailed banker seeking £6m in compensation
THE former wife of jailed Scottish banker Gary Mulgrew claims her ex-husband "physically and mentally" tortured her, it was reported yesterday.
Laura Murray is claiming more than 6 million compensation from Mulgrew, whom she described as a "pathological liar". She also said she "lived in constant fear of him erupting into a violent tirade".
Among the incidents inflicted upon her, Ms Murray claims Mulgrew punched her when she was pregnant and also tampered with the brake leads on her car.
Mulgrew was one of the so-called NatWest Three involved in the 2001 Enron scandal. He was extradited to America and convicted of plotting to defraud NatWest of 10 million.
Ms Murray is seeking 6 million from Mulgrew and Royal Bank of Scotland, whom she accuses of "intentionally concealing" Mulgrew's assets during their divorce.
Yesterday, her lawyer Charles Camp, said: "We're confident the claim we have against Gary Mulgrew is well founded." Mulgrew is due to return to the UK later this month to serve the remaining 14 months of his sentence.
