Ex-Deutsche Bank trader claims he was coerced

A former Deutsche Bank trader said he shouldn’t have to face a criminal trial in the U.S. over allegations of Libor-rigging because he was coerced in the U.K. into making statements that implicated him.

Bloomberg News reports that Gavin Black claims the U.S. case is fatally tainted by a U.K. investigation in which he was forced to testify – evidence that can’t be used in an American courtroom because of the Constitution’s ban on compelled testimony.

Separately, he’s seeking to prevent prosecutors from relying on statements he made in a Deutsche Bank internal investigation, claiming the government was effectively in control of the probe and that he had no choice but to answer questions while employed at the bank.
