Libor trader Tom Hayes at City Barge

Leaked Lunch with The Blind Spot by Izabella Kaminska

Episode notes
Izabella sits down for lunch with Tom Hayes, the former UBS Libor trader who was convicted in 2015 of conspiracy to defraud after being accused by the Serious Fraud of Office of conspiring with numerous other individuals to procure or make submissions of rates into the Yen LIBOR setting process that were false or misleading, thereby intending to prejudice the economic interests of others. Tom believes he was unfairly convicted and is campaigning to clear his name, especially now that the BBC's Andy Verity has unearthed new evidence, made up of a leaked cache of internal bank telephone calls, embroils far more senior banking figures in the affair.
