SAN DIEGO, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Robbins LLP reminds investors that a shareholder filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS) securities between July 22, 2019 and October 12, 2023. Barclays is a British universal bank.
What is this Case About: Barclays (BCS) Misled Investors About the Relationship Between its CEO and Jeffrey Epstein
According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants failed disclose that contrary to his false public assertions, James Staley (Barclays former CEO) had a close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and was reportedly aware of Jeffrey Epstein’s criminal activities and may have even sexually assaulted a victim who had previously been trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein. If discovered, Staley's close, personal relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and potential criminal activity could bring reputational, legal, and financial harm to Barclays. As a result, Barclays response to the British Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA's) inquiry regarding Staley’s relationship with Epstein was materially false. When Barclays became aware of information contradicting its response to the FCA inquiry, it failed to update the response so that it would be accurate, or otherwise take any meaningful action. As the truth of Staley's involvement with Epstein was revealed, the price of Barclay's shares declined.
