Christian Bittar, an ex-Deutsche Bank trader, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud in connection with the SFO’s investigation into the manipulation of the Euro Interbank Offered Rate.

A court order restricting reporting of the plea was lifted today.

The trial of the remaining defendants – Achim Kraemer, Colin Bermingham, Carlo Palombo, Philippe Moryoussef and Sisse Bohart – is scheduled to begin at Southwark Crown Court on 9 April.
