Thank you for your follow-up, Sylvie.

If you removed assets from a business account without a business purpose, then there is an arguable claim for embezzlement and potential fraud that the holder of the account can pursue you for. However, if you are claiming duress and black-mail, if you have legitimate grounds for doing so (for example the claim was that if you do not give him those funds, he will provide untrue information about you to others), it is a potential defense...however up to a point. What you would have would be known as an 'affirmative defense', and with such a defense you would still have to show that what you did was not because you were acting with any intent but because you were acting as a party under control of the other party.

Good luck.
