Varley is charged along with Roger Jenkins, Tom Kalaris and Richard Boath over the way the bank raised billions of pounds from Qatar in 2008.

They are the first senior bankers to face criminal charges in relation to events dating back to the banking crisis almost a decade ago, when Barclays raised £11.8bn in emergency funds from a number of big investors, including Qatar.

Varley, Jenkins and the bank are also charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation in relation to the fundraising that took place in October 2008.
