Jail Sentence Imposed For Insider Dealing


On January 21, Neil Rollins, a former senior manager of PM Onboard Limited, a waste industry firm, was sentenced to a prison term of 27 months for insider dealing and money laundering. Rollins was also ordered to pay £197,000 (approximately $310,000) in confiscation.

This case is the fifth successful prosecution brought by the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) as part of its ongoing drive to promote efficient, orderly and fair markets and to tackle market abuse. The sentence follows Rollins's trial which ended in late November 2010 with guilty findings on five counts of insider dealing and four counts of money laundering after he traded on the basis of information he obtained as a result of his senior position and laundered the proceeds.
