Businessman and television personality Duncan Bannatyne provided false evidence during a divorce money fight with his former wife, a judge has said.
Judge David Hodge said Mr Bannatyne’s aim was to mislead a court for financial gain.
The judge said Mr Bannatyne later corrected “the situation”.
Detail emerged in a ruling by the judge after Mr Bannatyne became involved in a legal fight with a newspaper publisher over whether the public could be told what he did. The judge ruled in favour of Associated Newspapers. He said there was a public interest in exposing attempts to mislead a court even if the person making such attempts had repented.
