Power of attorney – Enduring power of attorney. The Court of Protection revoked a lasting power of attorney (LPA) made on behalf of ARL, where her son, who was one of her two attorneys, had behaved in a way that both contravened his authority and was not in ARL's best interests by misappropriating funds and failing to repay them. The court was satisfied that the revocation of the LPA was in accordance with the law and was necessary for the prevention of crime.
