    SOS Kinderdorf International v Bittaye [1996] 1 WLR 987 PC (0 other reports)

In (1) SOS Kinderdorf International (2) SOS Children's Village Ltd v Bittaye 20.5.96 Privy Council, the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council holds that the dismissal of an employee who improperly lent funds held by his employer for a charity's purposes to a friend of his was not wrongful. That was a gross breach of trust, which justified the dismissal.
