A famous moneylender had been lending money partly in a illegal interest rate. However at that time, provisions of “Payment regarded as interest” (interest“voluntarily” paid by the borrower is valid despite illegal rate)existed. After the moneylender had bankrupted, the borrowers sued the directors of the moneylender according to the Companies Act 429. Most judgements said that defendant directors had continued moneylending contracts to which provisions of “Payment regarded as interest” had not applied, in a illegal rate. However,the judgements denied the directors’liabilities, on the ground that “the directors are not burdened with duty of recalculation”. This article reconsiders appropriateness of the judgements on the basis of famous judgements of the Supreme Court and the common theories of Company Law.
