Fraud rap banker's mum hell.
A BANKER accused of a multi-million pound fraud yesterday revealed the strain the case was putting on his mother, a prominent Scots politician.
Gary Mulgrew, one of three British bankers accused of a fraud involving US company Enron, is the son of Tricia Godman, Deputy Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament.
Gary, from Glasgow, said: "It's very difficult. She's a politician, but she's a mum first."
The Scot faces seven US wire fraud charges relating to the collapse of energy giant Enron.
Prosecutors in America want to extradite Gary to Houston, the Texas home of the failed company, to stand trial.
But Gary insists any trial should be in Britain despite a court in London last week ruling that there were grounds for prosecuting the three bankers in the US.
Gary added: "If we are guilty, there are perfectly good jails and perfectly good legal systems here that can deal with us."
