It was revealed this week that 60 victims of the 2016 safety deposit box heists are suing the bank for R121 million in damages.
Valuables worth millions of rand were stolen during the robberies in 2015 and 2016 at the Sunnypark branch in Pretoria as well as the Randburg and Parktown branches in Joburg.
The clients hit in the heists claim that FNB didn’t implement adequate security measures before the robberies and refused to offer reasonable compensation afterwards.
The clients are being represented by Trudie Broekmann Attorneys in the case which is headed to the high court in Joburg.
According to the law firm, there is evidence that suggests collusion between FNB employees and the robbers.
