The Serious Fraud Office suffered a humiliating defeat after three Barclays executives walked free from the Old Bailey yesterday.

The bank’s chief deal-maker, Roger Jenkins, 64, and executives Tom Kalaris, 64, and Richard Boath, 61, were all acquitted of committing fraud at the height of the financial crisis in 2008.

The SFO’s case against Barclays itself had already collapsed in 2018, and the bank’s former chief executive, John Varley, 63, walked free over the allegations last year.  

Amanda Staveley is the high-flying financier who brought in investors from the Middle East to save Barclays from a government bailout in 2008. 

With the Serious Fraud Office trial over, the 46-year-old Cambridge University graduate, who once dated Prince Andrew, will now sue Barclays for £1.5 billion for unfair treatment.
