Ex-Icap staff in court facing Libor claims

THREE former brokers at Icap were in court yesterday facing allegations of conspiracy to defraud by trying to manipulate key inter-bank interest rate Libor. Danny Wilkinson, Colin Goodman and Darrell Read (left to right) are accused of working with ex-UBS and Citi trader Tom Hayes to submit false interest rates, in a bid to improve the position of Hayes’ trades. The trio confirmed their names and addresses at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. Hayes appeared in court in December and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
