Duffield hits back over tribunal claims

Ex-New Star boss John Duffield has set out his own response to the unfair dismissal claim brought to an employment tribunal by former fund manager Patrick Evershed.

On a new website, Duffield says he was not a party to the litigation brought against New Star owners Henderson Global Investors nor was he called as a witness to the tribunal, which was settled out of court earlier this month.

Duffield says the reporting of the case – settled earlier into the New Star submission – had “inevitably left a one-sided view in the public mind”.

The former New Star boss refutes a number of the allegations made during the course of the tribunal on the website

He says he does not intend to comment any further on the matters.
