Who is Lukasz and what is the Polish banker accused of?

Lukasz, 32, is a Polish born personal banker who was accused of taking £26,000 from a 78-year-old’s bank account, which he was looking after.

He was charged on two accounts – one of fraud by abuse of position and one of theft.

Lukasz, who has two finance related degrees, lost both his job and his home after he was accused and the police froze his bank account.

In an emotional scene before the trial, Lukasz said: “It makes me really, really worried about myself, about my family, about my future, about everything I’ve done till now. It’s just the end of my life at some points, I really thought ‘I’m not going to be able to go through this.”

What other episodes of The Accused has there been?
