Ex-Tesco director is acquitted over £250m fraud scandal as Serious Fraud Office offers no evidence – just weeks after judge dismissed case against his two colleagues for being too ‘weak‘
Tesco‘s former UK finance director has been cleared over a £250 million fraud and false accounting scandal after the scandal-hit Serious Fraud Office (SFO) dropped the case against him.
Carl Rogberg, 52, was accused of knowing that income was being wrongly included in records to meet targets and make the company look financially healthier than it was.
His trial was abandoned last year after he suffered a heart attack and he was too ill to face a retrial alongside ex-managing director Chris Bush, 53, and John Scouler, 50, the former UK food commercial director.
