Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

CITY reg­u­la­tors have re­port­edly called in the chief ex­ec­u­tive of Bar­clays for a sec­ond in­ter­view over his at­tempts to root out a whistle­blower.

Jes Sta­ley was quizzed by both the Fi­nan­cial Con­duct Au­thor­ity and the Bank of Eng­land’s Pru­den­tial Reg­u­la­tion Au­thor­ity last week af­ter an ini­tial in­ter­view in July.

Both have opened a probe into Mr Sta­ley’s con­duct and se­nior man­ager re­spon­si­bil­i­ties re­lat­ing to Bar­clays’ whistle­blow­ing pro­gramme.

The in­ci­dent refers to anony­mous let­ters sent in 2016 to the board and an ex­ec­u­tive, rais­ing con­cerns about a new se­nior em­ployee and Mr Sta­ley’s role in the re­cruit­ment.
