  • Former Barclays executive Thomas Kalaris

The trial of Barclays (BARC.L) and four former top executives charged with fraud over undisclosed payments to Qatari investors as part of a 12 billion pound ($15 billion) emergency fundraising during the 2008 financial crisis has been set for January 9 2019, a judge said on Monday.

Varley is charged along with Roger Jenkins, Tom Kalaris and Richard Boath over the way the bank raised billions of pounds from Qatar in 2008.

The charges follow a five-year investigation in relation to the bank's fundraising.

The four former executives are the most senior bankers to be charged for events that occurred during the financial crisis.
