Bob Diamond, ex-Barclays chief, asked for secrecy

Former Barclays Bank boss Bob Diamond asked a High Court judge to keep his identity secret during hearings in which the rigging of a lending rate was discussed, documentation released yesterday showed.

Diamond was one of scores of current and former Barclays employees who wanted anonymity during preliminary hearings of a case relating to the manipulation of the London interbank offered rate (Libor), legal papers showed. The application was dismissed by Mr Justice Flaux.

Lawyers yesterday released a list of those seeking anonymity in the wake of the judge’s ruling.
