The US Department of Justice has dropped charges against three former ICAP brokers charged with Libor manipulation offences after they were acquitted in the UK.

Darrell Read, Daniel Wilkinson and Colin Goodman, who were acquitted in the UK in January, had their charges dropped in a filing in the Manhattan federal court made public on Wednesday.

The trio were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and two counts of wire fraud in the US in 2013.

The Department of Justice declined to comment.

The brokers, accused of conspiring with Tom Hayes to fix Libor, were acquitted at Southwark Crown Court in January, in a blow to the Serious Fraud Office.
