GOLDMAN Sachs chief executive officer Lloyd Blankfein (pictured) will testify at the insider-trading trial of the investment bank’s former director Rajat Gupta, a US prosecutor said in court yesterday.

Assistant US attorney Reed Brodsky said yesterday that Blankfein could be preceded by seven other government witnesses, making it likely he would take the stand next week.
