Reuters - Former junior Barclays trader suffers conviction setback

A former junior Barclays trader who was jailed in Britain for conspiring to rig Libor interest rates has suffered a setback in his attempt to quash his conviction.

Reuters reports that The Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC), a public body that investigates potential miscarriages of justice, said on Tuesday it had closed Jonathan Mathew’s case in June without sending it back to the appeal court, though it added he was entitled to make a fresh application.

The CCRC can investigate convictions or jail sentences and send them back to appeal courts if it is presented with new evidence or legal arguments not identified at the time of the trial.
