Diamond Offers to Rebut ‘Unfair’ Charges He Misled Lawmakers

Former Barclays Plc Chief Executive Officer Robert Diamond offered to return to U.K. Parliament to challenge lawmakers who said he wasn’t telling the truth about the bank’s relationship with regulators.

“The comments made at today’s hearing have had a terribly unfair impact upon my reputation, which is of paramount concern to me,” Diamond said in a letter yesterday evening to Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the Treasury Committee. “I look forward to discussing this issue with you further if you wish to do so.”
