Slaughters heads up raft of advisers as BA price-fixing case collapses
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has dropped criminal proceedings against four British Airways (BA) executives accused of price-fixing. The case, which was being heard in Southwark Crown Court in front of Mr Justice Owen, collapsed following the discovery of new email evidence last week. In a statement, the OFT said: "The OFT has decided to withdraw its criminal proceedings against four current and former BA executives for price-fixing. Following the OFT's decision, the four defendants were acquitted by the jury at a hearing this morning."
