UK crime agency examining leaks in insider trading investigation – WSJ
28 Dec 2018

The UK National Crime Agency (NCA) is examining accusations that an employee leaked information to a suspect for money, undermining a probe into a network of insider trading suspects in Europe, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

The NCA, which usually focuses on tackling serious and organised crime, is investigating whether a government translator with access to wiretap recordings tipped off the target of an insider-trading investigation, the Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Britain’s markets watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), declined to comment, citing reporting restrictions.
