    The abuse of confidence principle is founded on considerations of general public policy viz. that in order to protect those to whom fiduciaries owe duties as a class from exploitation by fiduciaries as a class, the law imposes a heavy duty on fiduciaries to show the righteousness of the transactions they enter into with those to whom they owe such duties.

  • Banco Exterior Internacional v Mann
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Nov 1994

    What notice will be requisite will depend upon the nature of the undue influence alleged.
