SICKENING facts about Ex-Barclay’s boss and paedo Epstein come to light

Barclays has said allegations that its former chief executive Jes Staley was aware of sex trafficking operations run by the late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein were “serious and new”, as it further distanced itself from its ex-boss.

It is the most substantial comment made by Barclays since Staley resigned in November 2021 after a UK regulatory investigation into his relationship with the convicted sex offender, who was one of Staley’s clients when he worked at JP Morgan years earlier.

The comments also signalled Barclays was further distancing itself from its former chief executive, having previously expressed disappointment at his departure.

“The board has noted the recent allegations made in the context of proceedings involving Jes Staley’s former employer, and against Mr Staley himself, in relation to events a few years prior to his joining Barclays. These allegations are serious and new,” Barclays said in a statement released to shareholders ahead of its AGM on 3 May.
