NatWest trio lose Enron extradition case

Bankers will face US trial over their part in corporate collapse

Three British bankers have lost their fight against extradition to face
charges in connection with the collapse of energy giant Enron.

At the High Court today, Lord Justice Laws ruled that the case against the
former NatWest employees was ‘perfectly properly triable’ in the US.

The three, David Bermingham, Giles Darby and Gary Mulgrew, had argued that
they should be tried by a British jury.

It is alleged that the bankers conspired with former Enron executives over
the sale of part of the company in 2000, earning them $7.3m (£4.2m).
