Barclays charged with fraud in Qatar case
Barclays PLC and four former executives have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud and the provision of unlawful financial assistance.
The Serious Fraud Office charges relate to a 2008 capital injection the bank received from Middle East investors.
The fundraising also included a $3bn (£2.3bn) loan facility made available to the State of Qatar.
John Varley, Roger Jenkins, Thomas Kalaris and Richard Boath will face Westminster magistrates on 3 July.
