SFO charges failed — but Barclays did not get off lightly

The High Court denying the Serious Fraud Office’s application to have charges reinstated against Barclays comes just months after the original charges were dismissed at Southwark Crown Court.

This latest defeat for the SFO regarding the bank’s 2008 fundraising in Qatar could be seen by some in business as a sign that they do not need to make great efforts when it comes to legal compliance.

But Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman wrote a piece explaining why such an approach is a dangerous one to take and why any investigation can be damaging, regardless of the outcome. It can be read here.
