Three former Tesco directors will stand trial in Crown Court next September to face charges of fraud in relation to the retailer’s £263m accounting scandal.
Chris Bush, 50, Carl Rogberg, 49, and John Scouler, 48, have been accused of acting dishonestly for personal gain and abusing their positions by falsely inflating Tesco’s supplier income. They appeared today in Southwark Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.
Mr Bush was Tesco’s UK managing director until the scandal emerged two years ago, while Mr Rogberg was UK finance director and Mr Scouler was food commercial director.
