HSBC prosecutions on their way?

Posted on

Jonathan Fisher QC has an article in The Times this morning that suggests that he would welcome HSBC prosecutions. The Times paywall is one most people will not wish to penetrate, and to some degree doing so in this case is not what matters. Who is saying this is what matters.

Jonathan Fisher is a barrister who, according to Wikipedia is :

a London barrister specialising in corporate and financial crime, proceeds of crime and tax cases. He is also a Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics.

You might think he has something to gain from a prosecution.

More important still, he's close to the Conservative Party. 

So my question is to ask if he's dropping a subtle hint? I think he might be.
