Charges against the three men relate to activities between January and October of 2012 and follow an investigation by City of London Police.

“After carefully considering evidence from the UK and overseas, the CPS has decided that there is sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction and it is in the public interest to charge these three men,” the CPS said a statement.
