FD Peter Andrew King facing insider dealing charges

Inisder dealing case involving FD Peter Andrew King gets bumped up to the Crown Court after a contested hearing in front of Westminster magistrates

A finance director is facing insider dealing charges at the Crown Court after
allegedly passing on information about the proposed takeover of Neutec Pharma, a
company which develops treatments for life-threatening infections.

The FSA said Peter Andrew King is charged with disclosing inside information
relating to the proposed takeover of Neutec Pharma to a lawyer Michael McFall,
“having had that inside information by virtue of being Neutec Pharma plc’s
finance director, and disclosing it to Michael McFall other than in the proper
performance of his job.”

McFall allegedly passed the information on to another lawyer Andrew
Rimmington before they both bought shares in Neutec Pharma, which was founded by
two
university
professors
in 1997.

Following a contested hearing which took place at Westminster Magistrates
Court, District Judge Miss Tubbs remanded King, McFall and Rimmington on
unconditional bail to appear at Southwark Crown Court for a plea and case
management hearing on 28 October 2009.
