RBS has suspended one of its senior trader over Libor manipulation claims, it emerged yesterday, following the publication of internal messages the staff member had sent to other employees.

Jezri Mohideen was suspended on Friday, less than three weeks after emails were published which revealed the then-head of yen products asked Neil Danziger “what’s the call on Libor?” Danziger, who has since been fired, replied “Where would you like it?”

Mohideen has denied wrongdoing.

“Our investigations into submissions, communications and procedures relating to the setting of Libor and other interest rates are ongoing,” said RBS.
