Missing US Navy sailors found dead
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has sent a sympathy message to President Donald Trump over the fatal collision involving a U.S. At the same time, I want to express my most heartfelt appreciation to our Japanese allies for their swift support and assistance.
Mr Varley was one of Britain's leading bankers, having been chief executive at Barclays for six years, and the charges against him will stun the City. Barclays said it paid GBP322 million in "advisory services" to Qatari investors, which wasn't initially disclosed after the capital was raised.
In its own statement, Barclays said it is "considering its position in relation to these developments". Richard Boath, a former senior executive at the investment bank, was accused of conspiracy to commit fraud.
The charges come almost five years after the SFO opened its case.
The bank also noted that the Financial Conduct Authority's investigation in relation to the Qatar deals will recommence, having been stayed in view of the SFO's investigation.
The United States Department of Justice and the US Securities and Exchange Commission have also been carrying out investigations over the payments.
