FT editor: Probe finds no collusion in reporting on Wirecard

BERLIN, Oct 3 (Reuters) - The Financial Times said on Thursday that an independent investigation of its coverage of German payments company Wirecard had found no evidence that its reporters had colluded with speculators.

Editor Lionel Barber, in an email to staff, said the two-month probe by law firm RPC had found that “the evidence does not support claims of collusion between FT investigative reporters and investors trading in Wirecard”.

“I am satisfied that there is no foundation to support the allegations of collusion levelled against our reporters by Wirecard,” Barber wrote in the email seen by Reuters. “We stand by our journalism.” (Reporting by Douglas Busvine; editing by John Stonestreet)
