Two former brokers at wholesale broking firm RP Martin Holdings have been charged with conspiracy to defraud as part of the Serious Fraud Office’s investigation into the manipulation of Libor.

Terry Farr and James Gilmour, both from Essex, were arrested in December 2012 by officers from the SFO and the City of London Police.

They attended Bishopsgate police station this morning and were each charged with counts of conspiracy to defraud. Farr and Gilmour will appear before Westminster Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

They were arrested in December alongside former UBS and Citigroup trader Tom Hayes. The SFO announced last month Hayes had been charged with eight counts of fraud.
