A former Barclays Plc executive who’s fighting a proposed ban from senior jobs in finance over his actions in 2012 said the then-chief executive officer of Barclays Wealth asked not to see a highly critical report.

Andrew Tinney, who was the chief operating officer of the bank’s wealth and investment unit, thought his manager, Thomas Kalaris, was being sensible by asking not to see the document that criticized him, according to testimony Tinney gave in a London court Thursday.
