Barclays copies whistleblower into internal emails about not talking to him

This is a bit unfortunate. Jonathan Cox, Director at Barclays Corporate, has copied Charlie Boyle, a whistleblower, into an internal email about NOT talking to him. Charlie’s site is here

This is an excellent example of when we should not have communicated with a WB!

This case was effectively closed a year ago BUT Peter Foley has taken for ever to complete the report – contacting the WB now and telling him this is still on-going could generate an unhelpful response. This WB previously went to the FCA and the UK newspapers.

We need to discuss this initiative more carefully.

Let’s speak later on our call.

In the interim, I will write to this WB to clarify the situation.

Kind regards
