Barclays bosses 'paid Qatar secret fees'

Senior Barclays bankers paid Qatar £322m in secret fees during the financial crisis in return for bailout funds, a court heard on Wednesday.

The case against four former executives has been filed by the Serious Fraud Office over Barclays' £11.8bn rescue.

The bank avoided a UK government bailout in 2008 by raising funds from Middle Eastern investors.

The executives are charged with conspiracy to commit fraud. All four have pleaded not guilty.
