An Abbey National internal investigation has finally cleared senior staff at its First National subsidiary of any wrongdoing, following allegations that they took backhanders in return for using a particular IT supplier.
The claims were made by Leslie Roberts, a former member of First National's IT department, who claimed that cheaper IT suppliers could have been used.
But Abbey National this week completed its own investigation and found there was no case to answer.
The findings backed up an initial First National internal probe two years ago, which also cleared staff.
A spokesman for Abbey National told vnunet.com that the case was now closed.
"The Abbey National Group has carried out an investigation and found no evidence or truth in the allegations," he said.
On examining the bank's findings the Metropolitan Police confirmed that they too would take no further action.
Abbey National, which last week reported a record £1bn loss, is in the process of selling the First National subsidiary to GE Capital.
