EU regulators to charge ICAP with benchmark rigging soon

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union regulators plan to charge broker ICAP soon with rigging the yen Libor financial benchmark, the EU’s antitrust chief said on Tuesday.

“In the coming days we will probably issue a statement of objections to the broker,” European Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia a news conference.

His comments came after the European Commission earlier on Tuesday charged HSBC, JPMorgan and Credit Agricole on Tuesday with rigging financial benchmarks linked to the euro, exposing them to potential fines.
