RECONCILIATION with his brother saw a local teacher accept that he owed £1m. to the estate his late father, the Civil Court heard yesterday.
RECONCILIATION with his brother saw a Guernsey teacher accept that he owed £1m. to the estate his late father, the Civil Court heard yesterday.
Tim De Putron, pictured, said the time had come to face his demons at a hearing to determine the level of interest owed on a number of loans from his father, former States member John Whitehead De Putron, who died in 2009.
The total amount owed is estimated to be at least £1.1m., according to the action brought by his brother, co-administrator of the estate Peter De Putron.
When giving evidence on day two of the proceedings, Tim De Putron said he had not spoken to his brother for many years and had ignored several attempts by Peter to establish what was owed following his father's death.
The maths teacher admitted he had 'buried his head in the sand' and tried to forget the debt until a letter from an advocate prompted him to reconcile.
