Lord Libor Says He Skewed E-Mail After Badgering From ICAP Pals

  • Colin Goodman says pressure started before he sat down at desk
  • Six brokers on trial in London for helping Hayes Rig Libor

Colin Goodman, the former ICAP Plc broker accused of skewing a supposedly-independent prediction e-mail to suit Tom Hayes, told a London court that he was was subject to "constant badgering and pressure" from his colleagues.

Goodman, who used the nickname “Lord Libor,” said on his first day of testimony that he usually ignored the requests, but adjusted his forecasts on "a handful of occasions" due to pressure that started "before he’d sat down at his desk."
