Bankers who rigged the Libor borrowing rate could face up to 10 years in jail. The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) admits that criminal proceedings could apply.

Its been a long time coming: last year the UK justice establishment sent many to prison following the riots - even for stealing bottles of water. But bankers who defrauded the whole country got off scot-free. So far.
