Robin Hood banker

But he’s Italian and not from Sherwood Forest in England. And there’s a happy ending, some what.

An Italian bank manager who robbed from the rich to give to the poor has narrowly escaped going to prison.

Gilberto Baschiera was the bank manager in the small mountain town of Forni di Sopra, where he stole about €1m (£0.9m) over seven years.

He took small amounts from wealthy clients and transferred it to those who couldn’t qualify for credit.

But he never pocketed a penny for himself – and avoided going to jail after a plea bargain with authorities.

“I have always thought that in addition to protecting savers, our task was to help those in need,” Baschiera said, according to Italian newspaper Corriere Della Serra.
