The lender and four former executives have all been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, after a five year investigation into fundraising during the 2008 financial crisis. The charges centre around payments to Qatari investors, during Barclays' £11.8bn ($14.9bn) fundraising to avoid being bailed out in 2008.
