Hampstead, Muswell Hill and St John’s Wood men accused of �3m insider dealing scam

A former bank boss and three of his associates appeared in court this morning charged over a �3million insider dealing scandal.

Martyn Dodgson, the 42-year-old former managing director of Deutsche Bank’s corporate broking team, who lives in Well Road, Hampstead, is accused of breaking strict rules while dealing in the securities market.

He is accused alongside Andrew Hind, 52, of Princes Avenue, Muswell Hill, Iranian businessman Iraj Parvizi, 46, of Hamilton Terrace, St John’s Wood, and Benjamin Anderson, 58, of Leigh Court Close in Cobham, Surrey.

All four men are jointly charged with carrying out the criminal conspiracy between November 2006 and 23 March, 2010.

Dressed in a white and blue checked open-neck shirt and khaki trousers, Dodgson spoke only to confirm his identity during a brief hearing with his co-accused at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

The defendants have not yet entered pleas to a single count of conspiring to commit insider dealing.

District Judge Howard Riddle gave them all unconditional bail until a plea and case management hearing at Southwark Crown Court on December 21.
