NO ALL-CLEAR FOR SOROS ON INSIDER TRADE

VETERAN financier George Soros failed to convince the European Court of Human Rights to overturn his 1988 conviction for insider trading on French bank Société Générale yesterday. The court said that Soros, who made $2.2m (£1.4m) on SocGen shares after being told privately that a group of bidders was trying to buy the bank, should have known he was risking insider trading. He has vowed to appeal.
